LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Court ruling a victory for Missouri women

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 | 4:13 p.m. CDT

It is encouraging that a federal judge has struck down an unconstitutional Missouri law which would have allowed local employers to deny their employees access to affordable birth control as provided by the Affordable Care Act. The ruling ensures that all Missouri women, no matter where they live or who their boss is, have access to basic preventive health care without a co-pay, including birth control.
