(CNN) Arizona businesses may soon be able to question female employees' use of contraception.

State lawmakers are considering a bill that would let employers deny women contraception coverage... and ask them why they are using it.
Arizona already has a law on the books allowing religious employers to deny the coverage for moral reasons.

This bill expands that right to all businesses.

Women could potentially get the pill for other uses, but they would have to explain why they use the contraception to their employers.

The bill advanced to the Senate, after making its way through the House.
