Tell Boehner: We're Watching You. Don't Attack Our Right to Choose.
Anti-choice extremist John Boehner is likely to become the next speaker of the House. He has his anti-choice agenda prepared, and he is ready. But so are we.
Boehner and his anti-choice followers want to push the new “Stupak on Steroids” bill. This bill is even worse than the original Stupak ban in health reform. It would ban coverage of abortion in the new system and impose a tax on Americans with private insurance plans that include abortion coverage.
Also on Boehner's radar screen -- repealing the health-reform law. It’s outrageous, but our opponents have threatened to overturn the health-care law, which promises major improvements in women's access to birth control and prenatal care services.
Take action and send a message to John Boehner and his fellow anti-choice cohorts that we are not going to stand by while they attack our right to choose.
I am writing to call on you, the expected House speaker, to pursue commonsense, common-ground solutions to our nation's problems that will improve our lives -- not an ideologically extreme agenda.
In particular, Americans did not vote for divisive anti-choice policies, such as a ban on insurance coverage for abortion or for cuts in basic services, like birth control, for women.
You have much to accomplish during the next two years to improve the economic crisis. I am calling on you to say no to an anti-choice agenda that will only divide our country.
