Tell Your D.C. Councilmember to Protect Employees’ Reproductive Rights
June 19, 2014
The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014, recently proposed by District of Columbia Councilmember David Grosso, would make it illegal for employers in D.C. to fire or otherwise discriminate against their employees over reproductive health care decisions, such as using birth control or in vitro fertilization.
The Center for Inquiry (CFI) supports this proposal as an important defense of reproductive rights and personal privacy, and urges you to contact your D.C. Councilmember to do the same.
As states continue to restrict access to reproductive health care, and the Supreme Court weighs whether or not to allow employers’ religious beliefs to dictate their employees’ health care decisions, the D.C. Council has an opportunity to stand up for an individual’s right to make important personal decisions according to their own beliefs and practices.
Your boss’s personal religious beliefs or political agenda should not dictate your livelihood, let alone your health care decisions. CFI urges you to write or call your D.C. Councilmember now and tell them to support this proposal!
