The Contraception Question and Escape from Orthodoxy {LISTEN}

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

To co-pay or not to co-pay?  That was the question for a couple of weeks as new legislation was offered by the Obama administration regarding employers being required to offer full  coverage for contraception to their employees. Was the resulting compromise?  And, of course, the broader question, is access to contraception a basic right? We then switch gears and discuss a recent book by former female member of the Hasidic Satmar sect of Judaism and whether her decision to leave was a choice or an “escape.”

I also sound incredibly stupid as I can’t quite get the distinction between “orthodox” and “Orthodox” or “conservative” and “Conservative” Judaism.  “Whatever.”  Or “whatever.”

I need flashcards or something– which we also discuss.
