Open Letter to Speaker Boehner

Re: Catholic Women use birth control per OUR consciences

There is NOTHING about birth control in the Bible. Male bishops should not be causing women to pay more for our birth control. Some of us need it for medical reasons and will be deprived too. Please don't side with men who have covered up pedophilia.

Thank you so much.

[Join me in writing Speaker John Boehner or call him at 202-225-0600]
