Hillary Clinton Sounds the Alarm on Behalf of Women's Rights

Today is the last day of my vacation in Ohio, and I'll be back in St. Paul tomorrow (Thursday). While scanning news sources this morning, I came across this op-ed by Hillary Clinton in which she takes on the Bush Administration for once again trying to undermine women's rights. As always, Sen. Clinton's knowledge of the issues and sense of right and wrong shines through. She begins:

'"The Bush administration is up to its old tricks again, quietly putting ideology before science and women's health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is poised to put in place new barriers to accessing common forms of contraception like birth control pills, emergency contraception and IUDs by labeling them "abortion." These proposed regulations set to be released next week will allow healthcare providers to refuse to provide contraception to women who need it. We can't let them get away with this underhanded move to undermine women's health and that's why I am sounding the alarm."'
