1/ Just attended a talk where I was reminded that #birthcontrol was a key player in women entering medicine. True for all fields of course.
2/ Threatening access to #birthcontrol is a direct attack on equity.
3/ It’s “synthetic sexism” to borrow a @ASlavitt turn of phrase. Sexism poorly disguised as health benefit savings.
4/ The societal ripples of sabotaging #birthcontrol access are so profound it’s beyond comprehension.
5/ This gets labeled as a liberal issue or a woman’s issue so that it can be ignored. Look at your workforce.
6/ Look at our disturbing gender inequities, amplified across race/ethnicity...
7/ Look at the varied, complex health and social reasons for #birthcontrol and #familyplanning ...
8/ And for any dudes who still think this is not your issue, consider this POV:
9/ This is not an ambiguous issue for a modern society that values health, safety, productivity, opportunity, equity, freedom, prosperity.
10/ The only question here is whether the US is still that society. / fin #HandsOffEveryonesBirthControl
