Law Will Allow Employers to Fire Women for Using Whore Pills
A proposed new law in Arizona would give employers the power to request that women being prescribed birth control pills provide proof that they're using it for non-sexual reasons. And because Arizona's an at-will employment state, that means that bosses critical of their female employees' sex lives could fire them as a result. If we could harness the power of the crappy ideas coming out of the state of Arizona, we could probably power a rocket ship to the moon, where there are no Mexicans or fertile wombs and everyone can be free to be as mean a cranky **** as they want at all times! Arizona Heaven!

Yesterday, a Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed Republican Debbie Lesko's HB2625 by a vote of 6-2, which would allow an employer to request proof that a woman using insurance to buy birth control was being prescribed the birth control for reasons other than not wanting to get pregnant. It's all about freedom, she said, echoing everyone who thinks there's nothing ironic about claiming that a country that's "free" allows people's bosses to dictate what medical care is available to them through insurance. First amendment. The constitution. Rights of religious people to practice the treasured tenets of their faiths, the tenets that dictate that religious people get to tell everyone who is not of faith how they're supposed to live, and the freedom to have that faith enforced by law. FreedomŽ.

Further, Lesko states, with a straight face, that this bill is necessary because "we live in America; we don't live in the Soviet Union."

Ah, yes, the Soviet Union. The sort of place where a woman might think about getting birth control through an insurance plan to which she contributes premiums without having to show her boss her prescription in order to prove that she wasn't using it to not get pregnant. The Soviet Union. A hellscape where women don't run the risk of losing their jobs over their sexual practices. What a horrible, awful place where herds of sluts run wild like feral ponies, humping everything in sight. The nightmare of unwilling motherhood evaded is a constant spectre in The Motherland.

Anyway, this bill probably won't get anywhere; it violates all sorts of privacy laws and I can't imagine that female citizens of Arizona would be in favor of having their rights further legislated away by a chamber of mostly dudes trying to win votes from Team Jerk Version of Jesus. But that doesn't make it any less depressing. In fact, it's almost depressing enough to make a lady consider building a time machine so that she can take it back to 1985 and find some job security in the Soviet Union.

I'm just wondering why employers can't require men to provide evidence that they are being prescribed Viagra for non-sexual reasons.

Apparently the defense for using a morning after pill that "It's Sang's Fault" is no longer admissable in court

The more I hear and see about Arizona and all of the crazy un American legislation they push the more I wish we could just cut them loose and give them to Mexico. I have never heard of such an un American idea. What is happening to freedom in this country???

Sounds more like a war on the contention that women take birth control pills for reasons other than preventing pregnancy.

Women do take the pill for more reasons than preventing pregnancy. It's a fact.

Although that's true, it shouldn't matter. An employer should not have the right to fire you for taking birth control pills. It's none of their business.

It's just snooping into people's personal medical conditions and it is none of their business but they think that since they partially or fuly pay for providing health insurance to you, they are allowed to know what Dr.'s you see, for what reasons etc., employers can access your claims history and see what 'their' insurance plan has paid out on you, which is a reason some people get fired because they are high maintenance cost individuals that drives up the plans cost. If you get cancer, your employer will find a way to fire you, have a heart attack end up in CCU, when you get back, they will find a way to get rid of you. It's just what they do.

That would seem to suit the President just fine. Contrary to the statement above, How long has the state of AZ been screaming for help with its borders?

Does not sound like a state that wants to be part of mexico to me. In fact, just the opposite.

If their idea of how to treat the women of their state is to can them from their jobs for taking birth control pills for whatever reason then maybe they don't belong in the United States. It is an utterly ridiculous law any way you want to slice it. It is un American.

I don't disagree with that sentiment at all. What does that have to do with firing women if they take birth control pills??? What are they gonna do start having random drug testing for birth control pills??? Geeesh! I have never heard of anything so utterly stupid!!!

If anything, it would make more sense to require birth control as a condition to receiving welfare or other fiscal government assistance. Of course you can't do that due to religious reasons for some people, but fiscally it would make more sense.

I believe more tax dollars flow upstate than downstate. On Long Island we always hear that we pay more in school taxes to the state than we receive back in aid
