Keep comprehensive women’s health care in reform bill!

2 07 2009

Women deserve and need access to comprehensive health care.  And when it comes to health care reform, it’s important that women and their health, including reproductive health, do not get discounted or sidelined as less of a priority.  But currently the Republican leadership on the Senate Finance Committee is pushing for a provision that will strip away crucial women’s reproductive health services.  Instead of creating a policy that would expand coverage, the language the Committee uses shows that coverage is shrinking.  What can you do?  Sign Planned Parenthood’s petition.  Tell the Senate Finance Committee that this is not acceptable.  We cannot further limit women’s access to comprehensive health care.  We won’t stand for this.
