Quote of the Day: Key Official on Women's Health

Kathleen Sebelius
"A proposal being considered in the Senate this week would allow employers that have no religious affiliation to exclude coverage of any health service, no matter how important, in the health plan they offer to their workers. This proposal isn't limited to contraception nor is it limited to any preventive service. Any employer could restrict access to any service they say they object to. This is dangerous and wrong.

"The Obama administration believes that decisions about medical care should be made by a woman and her doctor, not a woman and her boss. We encourage the Senate to reject this cynical attempt to roll back decades of progress in women’s health.

--Kathleen Sebelius, Dept of Health and Human Services in a letter to Huffington Post addressing the Replublicans' efforts to legislate women's health.
