Lon Newman and Julaine Appling
Route 51 regional talk radio looks at both sides of the debate over national health insurance and the decision by the Obama administration to enforce mandatory coverage of contraception through the Affordable Care Act. Host Glen Moberg moderated a discussion between Julaine Appling, President of Wisconsin Family Action, and Lon Newman, Executive Director of Family Planning Health Services Inc. The issue has become prominent in the upcoming U.S. Senate race in Wisconsin, and has provoked heated exchanges between national pundits, with some decrying a “war on religion” and others a “war on women”.
