WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats have pushed legislation through the House that would inscribe the right to use contraceptives into law.

It's Democrats' latest campaign-season response to concerns that a conservative Supreme Court that's erased federal abortion rights could go further.

House passage sends the measure to the Senate, where it seems likely to die.

The push illustrates how Democrats are latching onto their own version of culture war battles to appeal to female, progressive and minority voters.

Democrats are casting the court and Republicans as extremists intent on obliterating rights taken for granted for years.
