Arizona is currently trying to pass a law that will allow employers to fire women who are using birth control. Wouldn't surprise me if Idaho is next.When you go to that link, you find someone telling you this, and the next link down makes the same claim. But then you get to the newspaper coverage of the bill, and it's not quite what the previous reports indicate:
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 6-2 Monday to endorse a controversial bill that would allow Arizona employers the right to deny health insurance coverage for contraceptives based on religious objections.
Arizona House Bill 2625, authored by Majority Whip Debbie Lesko, R-Glendale, would permit employers to ask their employees for proof of medical prescription if they seek contraceptives for non-reproductive purposes, such as hormone control or acne treatment.
“I believe we live in America. We don’t live in the Soviet Union,” Lesko said. “So, government should not be telling the organizations or mom and pop employers to do something against their moral beliefs.”This might qualify as a bit intrusive of a law, but then again, it's an attempt at making an end-run around Obama's intrusive contraception mandate. And it is not a bill to allow employers to fire women who are using birth control.
