Sen. Clinton has come out and attacked the plan, stating that it would do nothing but hurt women, turning away medical providers from offering legal abortion, contraception, etc.

The new proposal by the Bush administration changes how abortion is defined, adding thing such as birth control pills, among other things to the definition.

Sen. Clinton believes this will give medical providers the right to refuse help to women in need.

Sen. Clinton stated “This is a gratuitous, unnecessary insult to the women of the United States of America. These rules pose a dire threat to women’s health, to health-care providers, and to uninsured and low-income Americans seeking care. It is a disgrace, but unfortunately it is not a surprise.”

She continued at a press conference held at the Bellevue Hospital that, “We will not put up uwith this radical, ideological agenda to turn the clock back on women’s rights.”

The proposal by the Bush administration has been attacked by several others as well.
