I just wrote my senator, Debbie Stabenow, asking her to introduce a floor amendment addressing this glaring omission. Equating birth control with abortion is nonsense, especially for anyone who seriously wishes to reasonably curtail the number of abortions performed each year. Since Debbie had to remind her Finance Committee colleague that his mother needed the maternity care that he cavalierly dismissed as unnecessary, I trust she'll do the right thing. Senator Stabenow has always had a keen eye for the obvious when it comes to gender discrimination.
