Sam Brownback: Woman "Work Somewhere Else" for Contraception

| by Michael Allen

During a call-in show on C-SPAN Monday morning, a woman from Osawatomie, Kansas told Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) that he wanted to turn back the clock on women’s rights (video below).

The woman said: “I am concerned that, along with lots of other red states, Gov. Brownback feels that we should be the reddest state in the country. Women’s rights are being trampled. He was talking about what President Obama is requiring insurance companies to do, to cover birth control. You know you are taking away the individual woman’s right to decide if they need birth control.”

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback disagreed:  “That’s not denying women’s rights. If a woman then wants birth control, go work somewhere else.”
