In a 19-9 vote Wednesday, the Arizona Senate voted to approve the amended contraception bill, known as House Bill 2625.

The bill now heads to Gov. Jan Brewer for final approval. There is no word on when Brewer will sign the bill since she put a moratorium on bills unrelated to the budget.

Under the new wording HB 2625 would allow any business that is "religious minded" to deny birth-control coverage to women.

Proponents of the bill say it protects religious freedom, while opponents said it discriminates against women.

    (When researching HB 2625 it relates to the state hi-way program.)

    "Under the new wording HB 2625 would allow any business that is "religious minded" to deny birth-control coverage to women."

    Men use birth control. Viagra and the others are covered? Complete nonsense.
    Adds to another reason Arizona is described as a cesspool and a toxic environment

    WOW! Talk about Big Brother. This bill is not acceptable. Religion has NO PLACE in government.
