Help Support Women's Access to Health Care!

This language comes directly from the Planned Parenthood webiste, as they do a great job at explaining the issue and the urgency of it!

Right now, the Republican leadership on the Senate Finance Committee is demanding health care reform language that will take away access to women's comprehensive reproductive health services. Our leaders should be focused on expanding health care coverage, not talking about taking benefits away from women.

The proposed language demanded will result in a drastic change to the benefits that many of us have now; and, of course, the hundreds of thousands of women who are not covered now will still be left out in the cold.

If you live in any of the following states: AZ, AR, DE, FL, ID, IA, KS, KY, ME, MA, MI, MT, NV, NJ, NM, NY, ND, OR, TX, UT, WA, WV, WY, contact the Senate Finance Committee here.

If you don't live in one of those states, you can sign Planned Parenthood's Health Care Reform Petition and receive reproductive health care updates in your state here.

This is such an important issue. Even right now women's access to reproductive health care is severely limited and Republicans in the Senate Finance Committee want to limit our access even more. We cannot let this happen!!

Wow I didn't even know about this. That is definitely a scary thing. Thank you for putting out the awareness about it. I'm definitely going to go sign it.
