An order from President Obama requiring religious groups to provide health coverage for birth control has caused protest in the Catholic community and has prompted a challenge from Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. The proposed Rubio bill “has loophole so big you could drive truck through it,” Jennifer Granholm says, allowing an exemption to any employer who claims to have a religious objection to contraceptives.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York sits down with Granholm to speak candidly about the proposed bill and reproductive health care in America.
“I can’t believe that today… in 2012, we’re talking about basic access to birth control, basic reproductive health care,” Gillibrand says. “It really is an attack on women.”
