I know that you were really concerned about the anti-choice attacks to health-care reform, so I wanted to send you this important update.
Health-care reform is moving forward, which is great, but anti-choice Rep. Bart Stupak, Sen. Ben Nelson, and right-wing groups continue to attack women’s abortion coverage in this bill. In fact, in an interview with “Good Morning America,” Rep. Stupak said he would bring down the entire bill unless there is a complete abortion-coverage ban in the new health system.
The staff at NARAL Pro-Choice America are working closely with pro-choice leaders in Congress to fight back against these attacks. I just signed my name to NARAL’s letter to make sure that pro-choice leaders know that thousands of pro-choice Americans from across the country stand behind them to fight against Rep. Stupak’s attack in the coming days.
I hope you add your name, too. We can’t let anti-choice politicians use abortion as a bargaining chip!
