Planned Parenthood, ACLU sue for birth control for low-income teens
October 29, 2010
Citing “the ability to make medical decisions, with your doctor, without interference from the government,” Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union have sued the State of Montana, demanding that the state’s health insurance for low-income children include contraceptive coverage.
State legislators removed funding for contraceptive coverage in 2009. “The government shouldn’t be financing contraceptives for youth, because then that circumvents the family,” said Keith Bales, a state senator.
