Members of Congress are returning to Washington, and they’re set to finish up work on the health care reform bill. As it stands, the bill has major restrictions that would limit seriously women’s access to abortion.
NARAL Pro-Choice America is gathering signatures for a petition to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and President Obama. The petition tells these Democratic leaders in DC that the abortion restrictions in current draft of the health care bill are unacceptable.
Sign the petition now to say that our leaders in Washington need to fix the bill. On the simplest level, that means that the reform must not take away coverage from women who already have it.
The goal is to collect 30,000 signatures before January 30, 2010, so sign the petition today, and then pass it along to your friends. Email it, post it, blog it, tweet it- get the word out any way you can, and remind everyone that without their input, the health care bill might leave out an essential part of women’s health.
