PHOENIX - Democratic legislators are continuing a war of words with Republicans over a bill that would let more Arizona employers drop coverage for contraceptives.
State Sen. Linda Lopez of Tucson says the bill is an intrusion into women's privacy and supporters are trying to justify it with "fundamentalist, Taliban-like religious beliefs."
Lopez and other Democrats held a news conference Wednesday to oppose the bill, saying it would force women to reveal private health information to employers.
The bill's sponsor, Republican Rep. Debbie Lesko of Glendale, disputed that employers would get that information.
Lesko and others pushing for the bill say the intent is to protect the religious rights of employers and they plan to change it to add reassurances that employers won't get worker's private health care information.
