Tell Congress: Hands off Women's Health Care

    1. Sponsored by

      National Partnership for Women & Families

Extremists in Congress are willing to shut down the federal government in order to advance an anti-woman, anti-choice agenda.

And they’re advancing some of the most harmful legislation we have seen in decades. 

In recent weeks, the House has voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act – which is the greatest advance for women’s health in a generation.

As if that’s not bad enough, they also voted to defund health reform implementation, eliminate funding for Title X and critical family planning services, and further restrict women's access to health insurance coverage for abortion services -- even when they pay for the policies with their own private funds.  

They are relentless -- and they’re not done yet.

That’s why we need your help. 

Sign this pledge to defend women’s access to a full range of health care services, including abortion and family planning.  

It’s time to end Congress’ war on women.

      This country cannot afford to go backward simply because a few extremists in power are backward in their thinking and their agenda.

      It's time the insane stop running the asylum and victimizing our country over and over again.

      Why are so many of these "pro-life" people also pro greed, pro gun, pro polluting industry, pro war and pro bigotry, etc?

      in an economy that continues to spiral downward, how is it fiscally (and morally) responsible to strip women of their ability to receive affordable healthcare? is it cheaper to allow women, and people in general, to get sick and then be hospitalized for who knows how long or to make it possible for them to seek treatment BEFORE hospitalization is required. just because YOU can afford high quality health care doesn't mean everyone can...and most people can't. consider the people you represent when obliterating these programs that are in place to help millions of people.

      Silly men, let them bleed for a week once a month and see if they like it. Like many women, our annual paps can be scary, with HPV going around. To take away the services to women you are condiming many to are deaths, to be a woman, wanting children, but can't all because some old man didn't see the point of the services. We are emotionall creatures and we are pissed!! too bad i'm not an illgeal mexican then I could have a baby for free. < fix that problem old man.
