Amicus brief shows serious women's health risks associated with HHS "Preventive Services" Mandate


Women Speak For Themselves ('WSFT,' a program of the non-profit Chiaroscuro Institute) is convening a press call to announce its filing of an amicus brief on Friday, October 12, in the United States Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia in connection with a lawsuit challenging the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' "Preventive Services" Mandate. The brief details the federal government's failure to build a medical case for the mandate and its failure to acknowledge the serious side effects and risk factors for women associated with it.
