Rally for Comprehensive Reproductive Health Care in Health Care Reform Legislation

Nov 19, 2009

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.
