We knew when the Trump administration rolled back the Obama birth control overreach that forced employers to pay for birth control, that today would be full of stupid on Twitter … and the #HandsOffMyBirthControl tag didn’t disappoint.
These people really think this way.
Employers have absolutely no business in private health decisions. This new rule is unacceptable. #HandsOffMyBC

They do if you want employers to PAY FOR these decisions.
Luckily, pro-life advocates were front and CENTER to take the lies and narrative apart:
Thankfully for all those hyperventilating today, employers *don't* have any say in "health decisions." They just don't have to pay for them. https://t.co/yOogF5qD1F

She’s so pretty.
Nobody is preventing any woman from obtaining Birth Control.
They're just keeping Nuns from having to pay for you. ¯_(ツ)_/¯#HandsOffMyBC

Little Sisters of the Poor say thanks.
In a matter of minutes those Trumpmobiles will drive to pharmacies nationwide and confiscate all the birth control. ZOMG! #HandsOffMyBC

The government just took their #HandsOffMyBC
You should be celebrating. Your body, your responsibility ❤️

YES! She gets it!
If you're so impoverished you can't provide your own birth control, ask your partner to help you, not taxpayers. #HandsOffMyBC

I'm sorry, I have no sympathy for this kind of first world problem garbage. Birth control is cheap & ubiquitous in the USA. #handsoffmyBC

Yeah, it’s pretty stupid that American women are having a hissy fit over having to pay for their own birth control. Women in the Middle East would likely flip us all off if we could see it through their burkas.
LOLOL —> #HandsOffMyBC says feminists, but hands in YOUR wallet to pay for it.

Hate to be a problematic woman, but #HandsOffMyBC would technically mean also not subsidizing it through the federal government, ladies…

Shh, they’re rolling.
If you can't afford your sex life, that's a pretty good sign that you shouldn't have a sex life

We are strong independent women who need our bosses at work to pay for our birth control!#HandsOffMyBC

Silly, ain’t it?
