Contraception Referendum To Appear On Ballot

(Chicago, IL) -- Illinois voters will decide if they support a law mandating health insurance plans cover contraception. Governor Pat Quinn signed a law that will put the measure on the ballot for the November 4th election. Quinn says he believes women should have full access to medical treatment and they should be able to make their own healthcare decisions. Quinn placed the measure on the ballot less than a week after the Supreme Court's ruling for Hobby Lobby that allows some birth control measures to be excluded from employer provided prescription drug plans. The question is an advisory question, meaning that the outcome of the vote won't change any laws.
