a message from Nancy Pelosi …Extreme Assault on Women’s Health

House Republicans have begun the most radical restrictions on women’s health in our lifetimes.

Their extreme agenda would punish women and businesses by increasing their taxes if their health insurance covers the full range of reproductive health care. It would cut off funding for women’s health care clinics that offer reproductive health services. They are also refusing to drop their attempt to redefine rape.

We cannot and must not stay silent in the face of this extreme effort to undermine women’s health and reproductive freedom in our country.

I am asking for your urgent support to help us raise $100,000 for the DCCC’s Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund so we can hold the Republicans accountable.

In the face of this extreme agenda, we cannot stay silent.

With your urgent support, we will speak out strongly against the Republicans’ effort to deny millions of Americans access to reproductive health care.

Thank you,

Nancy Pelosi

Tell Secretary Sebelius that Vulnerable Women Deserve Abortion Coverage

Stand Up Against Blanket Abortion Coverage Prohibition Take Action

Tell Secretary Sebelius not to undermine women’s reproductive health in the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plans.

Take Action

Remember how angry women got when we were told we couldn’t use our own private dollars to obtain coverage of abortion care? Well it’s back. The Administration decided — without justification in law or policy — to ban abortion coverage in the newly created Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plans.

It is still bad policy and your voice is needed.

Tell Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius how this harmful restriction undermines women’s access to reproductive health care now. Submit your comments today.

If adopted, this ban would prevent women with serious pre-existing medical conditions — like cancer or diabetes — from getting the abortion coverage they need to protect their health. And it will not even allow women the ability to pay for such coverage with their own private premium dollars.

Comments are due this Tuesday, September 28, so take action and tell Secretary Sebelius to stand up for the health of these vulnerable women and to reject this dangerous policy once and for all.

The National Women’s Law Center will not rest until the restrictions on abortion coverage are fixed. Thank you for continuing to fight with us to protect women’s health.
