CONCORD, NH - New Hampshire’s Representative Jeanine Notter (R-Merrimack) told committee members today that health plans shouldn’t cover birth control because it causes prostate cancer.
Rep. Notter sits on the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee, which heard public testimony today on late-entry House Resolution 29, urging the United States Department of Health and Human Services to rescind its rule requiring health plans to cover preventative services for women such as contraceptives.
According to the Mayo Clinic, prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man’s prostate.
This isn’t the first time Rep. Notter’s notions have generated public attention; last February she told cancer patients that they didn’t need the new health law because they could host community fundraisers to cover health care costs instead.
Rep. Notter can be reached at (603) 423-0408 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
