The health reform debate is heating up - and some members of Congress are playing politics with women's health.
Republican leaders on the Senate Finance Committee - one of the key congressional committees drafting health care reform legislation - are pressuring their colleagues on the Committee to exclude women's reproductive health care services.
Specifically, they are demanding that health reform legislation restrict coverage of abortion services - coverage that the majority of women have right now.
At a time when our leaders should be focused on expanding health coverage and providing better quality care for all Americans, this move to take away basic benefits is unconscionable.
We can't let this happen.
Some Senators are urging that reproductive health services be excluded, which would limit coverage many women have right now, as well as deny benefits to millions of women who would otherwise be covered under proposed health care reform legislation.
We need your help.
Women's health care needs are not limited to reproductive health, but it is a key determinant of women's overall health. A comprehensive health care reform plan that improves women's access to affordable, quality health care, including comprehensive reproductive health services, is therefore essential to improving the health of women, families and communities.
Urge your Senators to stand up for women's reproductive health needs in the debate over health care reform.
