Senate Candidate From Maine in DC for Rally
03/25/2014 10:04 AM ET  

U.S. Senate candidate Shenna Bellows is joining a rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court, which is hearing two cases dealing with access to birth control.

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Democratic Senate candidate Shenna Bellows is joining a rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court that's sponsored by groups that support access to birth control.

The Supreme Court is hearing two cases dealing with access to birth control. Two companies want the right to decline to pay for birth control under their personal health insurance plans.

Bellows, who's challenging Republican Sen. Susan Collins, said birth control decisions should be made by a woman in consultation with her doctor, ``not the government and certainly not her boss.''

Bellows, who's in Washington, D.C., for Tuesday's rally, has been a long-time advocate for women's health and reproductive freedom as a leader in the Maine Choice Coalition.
