New York State has long been a leader in advancing women's equality, stretching back to the Seneca Falls Convention 166 years ago this weekend. Sadly, as we mark this important anniversary, hard-won victories by the women's rights movement are being threatened by a radical right wing that seeks to roll back the progress we've made.
I respect the rights of others, including for-profit employers, to have their own opinions. But that does not mean that bosses should have a role in a woman's decisions about her reproductive health. Like all health care decisions, any decision about contraception should be based on a woman's needs and her current health.
