Birth Control in Arizona

The Huffington Post reports:
Arizona legislators have advanced an unprecedented bill that would require women who wish to have their contraception covered by their health insurance plans to prove to their employers that they are taking it to treat medical conditions. The bill also makes it easier for Arizona employers to fire a woman for using birth control to prevent pregnancy despite the employer's moral objection.
What is it with this constant war against women lately? If this bill passes, women could have to prove to their employers that they want insurance coverage for contraceptives, but they won't use it for birth control purposes.
