The House of Representatives has voted 423 to 0 to condemn the murder of Dr. George Tiller. Now it's the Senate's turn.
Dr. Tiller's murder is an extreme example of what happens when the health care system marginalizes reproductive health care.
To keep women healthy, health care reform must fully incorporate reproductive medicine, treating it as primary care vital to every woman's life.
PRCH is working with Senators Jeanne Shaheen, Amy Klobuchar, and Barbara Boxer on a resolution to condemn the murder of Dr. George Tiller.
Tell your Senators to honor Dr. Tiller with a resolution condemning his death and a health care plan that serves women.
I call on the Senate to support a resolution condemning the use of violence against providers of health care services to women and offering condolences to Dr. Tiller's family.
But this resolution is not enough. To keep our country's reproductive health care providers safe, the marginalization of their services must stop.
As you work to reform the health care system, remember that reproductive health care is basic health care for women. Any reform must guarantee access to comprehensive reproductive health care to keep women and families well.
