Action Alert: Sign the Petition to Support Reproductive Health Care

Sign the Petition to Support Reproductive Health Care
Sign the Petition to Support Reproductive Health Care
Your members of Congress are home for August, and they are under attack from those who want to destroy health care reform.

We need to speak up for reproductive health now, or our voices will be drowned out.

Sign PRCH's petition calling for the inclusion of reproductive health care in health reform. We will hand-deliver the petition to senators and representatives at their home offices this August. Can you add your name?

Tell Congress that patients need reform that covers reproductive health care. We can't let women's health get left behind.

Want to do more? After you sign the petition, you can sign up to help deliver it in person and meet with your members of Congress.

Thank you for lending your name to this crucial effort. Please forward this petition widely.

Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health
Women and families depend on comprehensive reproductive health care to stay healthy and safe. Under health care reform, every patient -- in any private or public plan -- must have affordable coverage for all reproductive health services. To ensure that patients receive the reproductive health care they need, health reform must enable physicians to provide coordinated, integrated, patient-centered, primary health care. Without these changes and coverage for reproductive health care, health reform will leave millions of women behind.

What's At Stake:
Four committees in the House and Senate have voted on health care reform bills and amendments to the bills so far. Numerous amendments would have restricted access to abortion, contraception, and other reproductive health services.
Many PRCH members and supporters called their senators and representatives to urge them to vote against the amendments. All but the most inconsequential of these amendments were defeated.
Physicians' voices have made a difference, but the fight is not over.
Members of Congress go home in August to hear from their constituents. We must keep up the pressure to enact health reform that protects and expands reproductive health care.
Sign the petition, share it with your colleagues, and help us deliver the signatures.
With your help, health care reform can succeed!
Campaign Expiration Date:
October 26, 2009
