Washington, DC — Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) today released the following statement after Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee challenged whether all women should have access to contraception. House Republicans called today’s hearing in response to the Obama Administration’s decision to ensure all women have access to contraception by requiring health insurance companies to cover contraception in cases where religiously affiliated employers object.
“All women deserve access to contraception. What is being debated before the Committee has nothing to do with religious liberty. The regulations that the Obama Administration adopted were developed by an objective, non-partisan panel. This hearing has everything to do with House Republicans trying to control the decisions best left to a woman and her doctor.
