Unlike most other women who receive health care coverage from the federal government, Peace Corps volunteers are denied coverage for abortion even in cases of rape and incest, and even when their lives are in danger.
The late Senator Frank Lautenberg introduced a bill that would extend access to abortion to women in the Peace Corps — the same comprehensive coverage that other federal employees receive. Urge your senators to support the Peace Corps Equity Act and repeal the outdated, unjust policies that deny Peace Corps volunteers abortion coverage.
I Support the Peace Corps Equity Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
I urge you to support the Peace Corps Equity Act, which would fix an unjust policy that currently denies equal treatment to Peace Corps volunteers.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
