← The Invisible Burka: Why women need secularism

[Removed by moderator to bring within Terms of Use] No one's trying to take freedom away from women-did you even read the article? No ones trying to ban abortion or restrict reproductive rights in any way here, and how this has anything to do with the separation of church and state is beyond me. The state senate is trying to "pass(ed) measures banning abortion coverage under state employees' health care plans and exempting religious health care providers from having to cover birth control." You can argue about the merits o this law-personally, I'm not sure what proportion of employee health care plans cover abortion, so I can't really say whether this out of the mainstream or not, but comparing this law to the actions of the Taliban, as some commentators here have done, is stupid.
