Watch live: #NotMyBossBusiness Pre-Rally Google Hangout

Tomorrow, the Supreme Court is taking up two challenges to Obamacare’s contraception coverage mandate. Basically, the court will decide whether your birth control is your boss’s business. So it’s a pretty big deal.

Activists are gathering in front of the SCOTUS tomorrow to show their support for birth control coverage. If you can’t make the IRL rally, you can tune in to a digital Google Hangout “rally” right here today at 3 PM ET. I’ll be chatting with experts from NARAL, NOW, the National Women’s Law Center, Sistersong, and Advocates for Youth.

According to the nonpartisan number-crunchers at the Congressional Budget Office, 22 million people would lose healthcare coverage under the Senate GOP bill – a loss largely ...
