ACT NOW: Protect Women in Health Care Reform
On Saturday, November 7th, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a historic health care reform bill. Unfortunately, the House also adopted the Stupak ban–an amendment that would effectively ban private health insurance from covering abortion in the United States.
The good news is it’s not too late! We must act NOW to ensure that the Senate bill does not include a similar attack on women. Please call California’s Senators and urge them to stand up for women’s health and reject any anti-choice amendments to health care reform!
Call Both Senators TODAY and Leave a Message
Message: Hi may name is __________ I live in California. I’m calling to urge the Senator to oppose any amendments—like the Stupak ban–that restrict access to reproductive health care. We’re counting on her leadership to ensure that women are protected in health reform.
Senator Barbara Boxer
Senator Diane Feinstein
After you call both offices, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "I called Boxer & Feinstein."
