Tell Speaker Boehner: Stop the Rape-Audits Bill

    1. Sponsored by

      NARAL Pro-Choice America

Imagine having to recount a sexual assault - a horrifyingly painful, personal experience - to a tax collector.

That could be a reality if an anti-choice bill moving through Congress passes. H.R. 3 could force sexual-assault survivors who access abortion care to prove the assault occurred.

And it doesn't stop there. This is just the latest revelation about an anti-choice bill that is so extreme it would essentially end insurance coverage of abortion in the new health system. That means if your private insurance covers abortion now, you could lose it.

Anti-choice politicians in Congress are working furiously to make it as difficult as possible for any woman – under any circumstance – to access abortion care. Believe it or not, this legislation has enough votes to pass – but we’re not giving up. We need to collect as many signatures as possible, right now.

Tell Speaker Boehner that the War on Women must end. Sign our petition calling on him to put a stop to H.R.3.

      Stop pushing your limited sight of how our bodies should behave on us. H.R.3 is an attack marriages and those of us who choose to file joint taxes. It is an attack on single low wage working women and their children. Work on building our economy, not on putting a burden on it with more unemployable women and unwanted babies thrown into in the system. You think abortions are draining away our tax dollars? Thousands more unfed and homeless babies and mothers will destroy our system.

      I am a Republican and tend to lean towards pro-life stance; however, I am outraged that this bill would cause sexaul assault victims to "prove" they were assaulted
