Julie Korinke, Public Affairs Manager for Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties will be speaking on the war on women and how it impacts this election both locally and nationally.
AU Executive Directory, Barry Lynn had this to say earlier this year: “Imagine if you went to work tomorrow and your boss announced that your health care plan would no longer cover surgery. He had become a Jehovah’s Witness and could no longer in good conscience support any procedure that might involve a blood transfusion. Even though you’re not a member of that faith, you’d have to go along with that. Ridiculous, right? Not really. There are people in Washington working right now to pass legislation that would allow your boss to tailor your workplace’s health care plan to his religious beliefs. And worse yet, they’re doing it in the name of “religious freedom.”
If you think it’s not a big deal, think again. This is one slippery slope, which will give those with a religious bone to pick control over aspects of your health care.
Everyone deserves religious liberty. In order to ensure that everyone, not just those with political clout, has that liberty, we must stand up and fight back when someone attempts to impose their religious beliefs on others.”
