Women Will Not Be Thrown Under the Bus!
On Wednesday, January 13th, NotUndertheBus.com, a project of the Women’s Media Center, is asking people everywhere to take action against the discriminatory, anti-choice language that exists in both the House and Senate health care bills. While we are in support of health care reform, the anti-choice language must be taken out. Otherwise, these bills would effectively roll back women’s health care coverage in the area of reproductive rights and it is up to all of us to make sure we don’t get thrown under the bus by politicians in Washington.
Before both bills are reconciled, it is important that you make your voice heard. There are a variety of actions you can take on NotUnderTheBus.com, but most of all you must tell lawmakers in Washington to keep women’s health care safe, fair and covered and urge them to strike any anti-abortion amendments from the final bill.
See this video about why it is important that women don’t get thrown under the bus. Call your elected officials. Write an op-ed. Sign this petition on CARE2 and help spread the word using these additional steps below:
