Hey Girl(s), today the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) upheld the main provision of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration's health care reform legislation.
This decision means a lot for women and their co-pay-free access to certain care, including well-women exams, contraception, STI screenings and domestic violence screenings. The Affordable Care Act also makes it illegal for insurance companies to charge women more than men for comparable coverage.
We decided to celebrate the way we commemorate other occasions: by imagining what Ryan Gosling would have to say about it. Our unofficial mascot (yes, we've claimed him) waxed eloquent on book publishing, feminism and "The Hunger Games," so why not affordable health care?
Enjoy (and by all means, click "fullscreen").
LOOK: Hey Girl, Affordable Health Care!
