Yeah.... think you missed the "feministing.com" part of the link. :p

Here's a story from the AP about the bill. I scanned through and didn't see anything about firing people over birth control.

EDIT: @jkcerda found it already and beat me to it. :thumbsup:

Republicans cry about small government, yet they want control everything. Republicans can go **** themselves.

Republicans made US looks like very backward while whole world is moving forward
My guess is that you're responding to the heading and didn't even look at the link.

Might want to actually check it out to see if it's valid or not before you go "weapons hot" on people.

Whole thing about abortion is absurd. People should able to choice if they want to perform abortion. Government has noting to do with abortion.

When a woman think they don't want the baby, they are the one should made the choice. Republicans want to ban abortion, there is no secrete about it. They are doing everything they can to prevent abortion. And it is absurd.

Canadians definitely have an advantage over the United States. Whenever you're a little upset you can go to the hospital and have your feelings checked for free.
U jelly? But we did pay for it already <edit> dammnit @jkcerda you're fast on the draw! </edit> Also since we've mostly (sadly recent evidence shows we got some work to do) moved on from this puritan BS and basically want a society were we back up one another, we don't get our feelings hurt that often.

P.S. In the "land o' the free" ...since when do companies have the right to dictate private behaviour?

You can't be against big government and wanting the government to regulate someone's vajay at the same time.

OK, let's check out your link:

Republican Gov. Eric Greitens has said he called the special session on abortion in reaction to the St. Louis ordinance banning discrimination in employment and housing based on "reproductive health decisions" and a federal judge's ruling that struck down some Missouri abortion restrictions passed in previous legislative sessions.
IOW, Gov. Greitens thinks it's a bad idea to have people who seek out birth control not be discriminated against. The horror! :eek:

The ruling, which the state is appealing, tossed out requirements that doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, and that clinics meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery. Greitens wants lawmakers to enact other restrictions on clinics in place of those that were struck down.

Planned Parenthood raised questions about the constitutionality of the bill passed by the House. Enacting the legislation would put "medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion providers," Planned Parenthood Advocates of Missouri policy and organizing director M'Evie Mead said in a statement.
We've seen these "requirements" for "standards" on family-planning clinics before: it's basically a backdoor abortion ban.

The latest version of the legislation would give the state attorney general, now Republican abortion-opponent Josh Hawley, authority to supersede local prosecutors to enforce the state's abortion laws.
Ah, yes, the GOP, party of small government...small enough to fit You-Know-Where. ;)

Under the latest version, doctors performing abortions would be required to meet with women at least 72 hours in advance and review potential risks of the procedure. Currently nurses, physician assistants, counselors and others could also provide that information.
The Three Day [strikethrough]Scarlet Letter[/strikethrough] Waiting Period. Again.

Looks time to saddle up and lock 'n load to me.

Dude. Step away from the keyboard and breathe. Deep breaths.

You've been triggered by a bogus article. Abortion is legal and the SCOTUS has upheld this. There is likely nothing that is going to change that.

Relax. Deep breaths.

Since never because being Missouri an at-will state, both employer and employee can terminate the relationship without any warning, reason, or timeframe. The article is bogus. No need to allow a company to terminate because of "birth control"

Ok so how would they know who specifically is getting birth control without access to private medical records?
