Woo Hoo!!!! I'm doing the preliminary victory dance right now and for the rest of the week! Though it was very, very close, comprehensive coverage for women (and families) passed in the House of Representatives today! This is ginormous!!!! My state's rep, William Delahunt cares about women, our rights and the future of this country. He cares enough to stand up to the bullies in Washington to make sure that we get the health care we, as human beings deserve! I've sent my message to thank him.
Please, take a moment and click the link below to see where your representatives' loyalties lie. Fight against them if they need convincing that we shouldn't have to worry if screenings and check ups will be covered, along with a number of procedures! But thank them if they stood up with Mr. Delahunt in the race to save women's health and, ultimately, lives. It takes a lot to stand up to a bully, but with our support, I think it makes their job more worthwhile and, maybe, just a little bit easier.
VICTORY! Thanks to supporters like us, Congress passed health care reform, and we were able to keep the Stupak abortion ban out of the final legislation! But there is still much work to be done to ensure that all women can get the quality, affordable care they need. I contacted Congress today to let my representative know that I will continue to be vigilant about any new restrictions on private health insurance coverage for abortion. Will you join me?
