Thank your State Representative for Passing the Contraceptive ACCESS Bill

house access thank you

 

 

 

On November 8th, the Massachusetts House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Contraceptive ACCESS bill, a critical piece of legislation that would ensure that 1.4 million Massachusetts women have access to no copay birth control, regardless of President Trump’s latest attacks on birth control coverage.

We’re going to need your help to pressure the Senate to pass the bill. In the meantime, take a moment to thank your state representative and share why you appreciate their leadership on protecting affordable birth control access.

Thank you for voting in support of Contraceptive ACCESS

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to you today to thank you for the recent House passage of An Act Relative to Advancing Contraceptive Coverage and Economic Security in Our State (H. 536).

The ACCESS bill ensures no copay birth control for 1.4 million Massachusetts women. As you know, a swift passage of this legislation is critical, especially since the Trump Administration slashed birth control coverage last month.




Birth control coverage affects all of us. Contraception is basic, preventive health care that everyone should be able to access, regardless of their economic status. Almost all women, 99% in fact, have used birth control at some point in their lives. Prohibitively expensive copays and out-of-pocket expenses can make an individual's ability to protect their health and plan their family impossible.

President Trump's birth control rule allows a woman's boss to determine her most basic and personal of health care decisions.

The national attacks on birth control baffle me, and it is comforting to know that you and my state legislature are taking action to pass ACCESS.

As the 2017-2018 legislative session continues, I hope you will continue to lead and pass bills that reduce health disparities and improve the sexual and reproductive health of your constituents.

Thank you,
