Misleading statement

Your front-page article on single women voters repeated the very misleading statement that the Supreme Court decision says “family-owned corporations do not have to provide birth control in their insurance coverage.”

In fact, the corporation only objected to four out of 20 types of birth control, leaving 16 forms still covered by insurance. Repeating this inaccurate statement worsens the already poisonous political atmosphere and encourages extremism. Shame on The New York Times for printing it, and on The Tribune for reprinting it without correction.
