Any cut to Medicaid is a threat to reproductive healthcare. During this political War on Women, it is not unreasonable to assume that the first thing on the chopping block will be reproductive health services and women’s health care.
More women have taken emergency contraception now that it is available over the counter; White House to hold first-ever transgender issue meeting; and maternal mortality for African-American women in California skyrockets.
Currently women account for 46.8% of total U.S. labor force and it is projected to increase over the years. The current work place operates in a man oriented way undermining the fact that there are more women in the work place than before the 1970s. Policies as well as employers need to change to reflect the change in workforce.

Senator Kyl removes his "not intended to be factual" statement about Planned Parenthood from the Congressional Record; Minnesota state representative finds United Church of Christ minister and ACLU "disgusting;" and an anti-choice group demands that a state-funded teen sexual health site be shut down.
