Have you been following RH Reality Check‘s coverage of the birth control benefit, the accommodation to the birth control benefit, and the accommodation to the accommodation to the birth control benefit? Have you at any point wanted to tear your hair out because, let’s get real: you didn’t go to law school and parsing through all the legal mumbo-jumbo is about as fun as putting on a space suit and farting in it?
Well, you’re in luck, because I believe that every thinking person in this country should know exactly what is going on with the birth control benefit and how the religious right is wielding the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as a weapon against your rights, human. At the same time, I understand that this stuff can get complicated and confusing. But fear ye not—I’m here to help!
