Stop Stupac Amendment, and any variations
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
The Stupak amendment included in the historic healthcare reform bill passed by the House of Representatives on November 7 tramples the human rights of millions of women across the country. In a time when we should be expanding access to necessary healthcare services, women have been shut out. Women’s rights advocates in the US and around the world have struggled over decades to ensure that women have access to safe and affordable reproductive healthcare, including essential abortion services. When women are denied access to abortion, their human rights are violated. This Administration has made positive strides towards ensuring women’s reproductive rights: when you repealed the Global Gag Rule, you eliminated a ban on foreign aid to organizations that provide abortions. That repeal was only a start, and we must continue this progress, in the US and worldwide. We must eliminate US policies that threaten women’s lives. The bill’s Stupak amendment has created one of the greatest threats to US women’s reproductive rights in a generation. We strongly urge that the amendment, or any form of it, be excluded from the Senate healthcare reform bill. And, again, stop Stupac Amendment, and any variations there of. As well, no trigger, because triggers don't get pulled. Also, please, advocate for singlepayer healthcare, with Community First Choice Option and CLASS Act (Community Choice Act for the handicapped, elderly, autistic, disabled, etc.); H.R. 676 & S. 703.
