(CNSNews.com) – Many of the protesters who gathered in front of the Supreme Court on Tuesday to support the Obama health care law were wearing pink T-shirts with the logo of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and purple NARAL Pro-Choice America T-shirts.

One woman who was wearing a Planned Parenthood T-shirt agreed to speak on the record when asked by CNSNews.com about what the connection was between support for the Affordable Care Act and groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood.

“I believe that all women should have access to full reproductive health care, and it should not be dependent on their ability to pay,” Deidre Schifeling, a Washington, D.C., resident told CNSNews.com. “And so the reason I support health care reform is because I believe women should have access to birth control.”

When asked whether that includes abortion, Schifeling responded: “I mean full reproductive health care.”
