June 20, 2014

Writing for Roll Call, Julia K. Stronks, J.D., Ph.D., the Edward B. Lindaman Chair of Political Science at Whitworth University, and Jeffrey F. Peipert, M.D., Ph.D., the Robert J.

Here is the irony: Although the owners of these for-profit corporations oppose the contraceptive requirement because of their pro-life religious beliefs, the requirement they oppose will dramatically reduce abortions.”
