Rally for Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care in Health Care Reform Legislation

The U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment to the health care reform legislation sponsored by Bart Stupak (MI-1) and Joe Pitts (PA-16). This amendment would restrict access to abortion procedures for consumers who receive subsidies to buy insurance in a reconfigured health care system. Pro-choice organizations are very concerned that the new language threatens the availability of private insurance coverage for comprehensive reproductive health care services.

Action Requested
Attend a rally from 11:30am to 1:00 pm and hill day in the afternoon on Wednesday, December 2 in Washington, DC on Capitol Hill to prevent the Stupak/Pitts amendment from being included in the Senate version of health care reform. If you would like to attend, please contact Dina Kastner at advocacy@naswdc.org. She will help you set up hill visits with your Senators and provide you with further information about the rally and the agenda for the day.
