    And where in the country you work. Such as Arizona who has currently trying to bring in a bill allowing employers to sack women if they are using the pill for anything other than medical purposes.

    How would they know? Are they going to start drug testing for the pill?

    I'm not entirely sure how they do things over there but it has something to do with getting reimbursed from your employer for health insurances things, or something of that nature.

    Just in arizona - and no, you simply won't be able to get birth control on your insurance (if your boss pays for it) - if they disagree with birth control (unless you can prove that you're not on it for contraceptive purposes)


    [and yes - i've taken to following american politics, instead of doing my uni work ]


    Some of the laws being suggested, or passed, are nuts.
    A new bill moving through the Tennessee House of Representatives would require the state to publish the names of each doctor who performs an abortion and detailed statistics about the women having the procedure
    the Georgia State Legislature debated a bill in the House that would make it necessary for some women to carry stillborn or dying fetuses until they 'naturally' go into labor.
    In Colorado, the Republicans in the House passed the First Degree Homicide of the Unborn Child bill. This bill would make it an homicide to terminate a pregnancy or use a morning after pill. It would also confer all the rights of personhood on a newly fertilized egg.
    And since 2000, the number of US states hostile to abortion has increased from 13 to 26 [here] :-( thank goodness i don't live there.

    I am so glad I live here and I hope that we never, ever go down that path. It is really quite upsetting to think about some of those attitudes. Homicide to use the morning after pill?? Good grief.

    If the US are as interested in equal rights and individual freedom as they profess to be then they need to address some of the attitudes and political issues in their own backyard.

    every country has things we wont agree with, I know there are some here that just baffle me and are very backwards but those laws wont pass over there anyone can try to make a law but most dont pass.

    but even if he IS prime minister, he won't have ultimate power. we can still fight for our rights (and f**king oath, fight we shall ). KWIM?

    Thank goodness for that, it just scares me some of the things he DID have passed when he was Minister regarding health and workplace relations.

    He's clueless! There's no way he's suitable for our PM.
