"Missouri Governor Flooded With Emails About Anti-Contraception Bill"

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) has received over 5,000 messages from his constituents about the state’s proposed health insurance legislation, which would allow employers to deny access to birth control if they have a religious or moral opposition to contraception. Missouri’s bill, modeled after the failed Blunt Amendment that would have enacted the same restrictions on a national level, has already passed the state’s House and Senate.
