Urge the Senate to Preserve Access to Birth Control

    1. Sponsored by

      NARAL Pro-Choice America

Anti-choice Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) is using a transportation bill to try to undo the entire birth-control coverage policy.

If this amendment passes, it would be a disaster for women and men’s health on many fronts.

It would completely undo the no-cost birth control policy, which will ensure that virtually all women get their prescription birth control covered with no copay.

The amendment would also go so far as to allow insurers to deny coverage for any essential health service they deem immoral. Think about the implications. Women and men would be at the whim of their boss for HIV treatment. Single women who wish to have a child might be refused coverage for prenatal care.

The U.S. Senate could vote on the Blunt amendment at any time. Help us fight for birth-control coverage and basic health-care for women, wherever they work. Urge your Senators to oppose this harmful amendment today.

      Birth control has been difficult for me to receive. This should be a right that can make a huge difference in letting us be more in control.

      Insurance companies should not be able to pick and choose their coverage when we pay the same price all the time. Especially when it is discriminating to women. Our government has no business putting their say into what insurance companies should and should not pay for. Access to birth control is a woman's right and for congress to take that away would be the complete opposite of what our constitution is there to protect us from- and everything the Senate is supposed to stand for.

      I take birth control for health reasons. I take it, because naturally my body has more testosterone than estrogen which prevents me from having a menstrual period. Without birth control, I suffer horrible menstrual cramps that are beyond excruciating. I was even told by my gynecologist that it would be dangerous to my health if I continued not having periods. I am 20 years old.
