I received this from a friend and thought it worthwhile to forward along
_______________________________________
Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important
legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book. If
there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be
heard, this is one of those times. If you're receiving this,
it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go to vote
on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the
same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient
Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a
minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a
mastectomy. It's about eliminating the "drive-through
mastectomy" where women are forced to go home just a few hours
after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still
groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still
attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page
with a petition drive to show your support. Last year over half
the House signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site
below. You need not give more than your name and zip code
number.

This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to
your friends and family, and on behalf of all women
Visibility: Everyone

1. Go to a peaceful, serene spot that you feel most calm in. It must be quiet and free of clutter. 2. Close your eyes and get into a comfortable seated position. Take six deep breaths with a count of six seconds on the inhale through the nose and four...
