Planned Parenthood Tells Fox News That Birth Control is Health Care

After Media Matters caught a Fox News host saying that health insurance shouldn't cover contraception because it's "not our responsibility" to "subsidize workers' sex lives," Planned Parenthood Action started a petition calling out the network for misrepresenting birth control.

In a letter to Fox News, a longtime Planned Parenthood activist writes: 

"Saying that paying for birth control is subsidizing sex lives is the same as saying paying a wage is subsidizing your employees' home lives. And by your logic, paying for maternity leave is subsidizing sex lives too. Is that what you're going after next? Birth control is health care, plain and simple."
