This weekend the U.S. House of Representatives passed a budget bill that would force key provisions of the Affordable Care Act to be delayed by a year, allow bosses to deny their employees birth control based on their own "moral" objection, and once again give insurance companies the right to charge women more for the same coverage as men.
These out-of-touch lawmakers are willing to shut down the federal government, just to force through an extreme, anti-women's health agenda. It's simply unconscionable. Tell your representative to stop playing politics with women's health.
Stop playing politics with women's health
To every member of the House of Representatives:
When you passed a budget bill that would delay the Affordable Care Act, you were telling the women of America: you do not deserve health care.When you used the budget bill to give bosses the power to deny their employees birth control coverage, you made it clear that you think women should not be able to make their own medical decisions.
