Ask Sen. Snowe to Vote for Health Care Reform!

The AP reported yesterday that anti-choice Democratic Senator Ben Nelson refuses to vote to move the health-care bill forward unless it includes his outrageous Stupak-style ban on abortion coverage. No more compromises can be made with women’s health, so Senator Nelson’s vote is out! However, the Senate still needs 60 votes for health care reform.

That’s why Democrats are turning to Senator Olympia Snowe from Maine. She is the only Republican to cross party lines and vote for health care in committee, and she's the only Republican to vote twice against a ban on abortion-coverage.
Please take action TODAY by adding your name to NARAL Pro-Choice America's emergency petition. It asks Senator Snowe to vote to advance health reform that doesn't jeopardize women's insurance coverage for abortion in the new system.
The deadline is Saturday, December 19th, so make sure you sign this petition TODAY. And do not forget to email, tweet, post, and share it with everyone you know that supports health care reform. It is essential that this bill moves forward, and Senator Snowe is the key to that. That means that YOU are the key too. Spread the word!
