Sanders Statement on Women’s Health Care

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17 - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today issued the following statement today answering critics of President Obama's plan to require insurance coverage of contraceptives for women.

"In Vermont and around the country, there is growing anger that members of Congress, mostly men I should add, are trying to roll back the clock on women's rights, in this case the right of women to receive contraceptive services through their insurance plans," Sanders said. "This attack is grossly unfair, and I hope that men will join women in the fight to protect this very basic right."
