As reported by The Daily Caller, Sen. Frank Lautenberg criticized GOP opposition to the the president's mandate that Catholic institutions cover employees' birth control, saying the "GOP agenda gives women one option–barefoot and pregnant."
The GOP agenda gives women one option–barefoot and pregnant. It’s time to tell the Republicans to mind their own business. Our side believes that women should be able to choose the paths in life that’s best for them. And that’s why President Obama wants to make birth control more affordable. Contraception is basic healthcare, and it’s essential for individuals to choose when they want to have a career and when they want to start a family.
