Anti-choice leaders have spoken -- now it's your turn

Planned Parenthood Action Fund

We have no time to lose: the House is set to vote on health care reform as early as this weekend.

Anti-choice leaders and opponents of women's health care are pushing hard to get lawmakers to introduce anti-choice amendments to the health care reform legislation — and far too many House members are listening. If they succeed, women's health will be in grave danger. We can't let that happen.

Please dial 202-730-9001 or click here to be connected to your representative's office today, and tell him or her to oppose all attacks on reproductive health care and vote for the health care reform bill as-is. You also can find more talking points here.

Just last week, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops asked every Catholic in the country to demand that lawmakers alter current health care legislation to include anti-choice amendments (they even asked priests to include their call to action in their sermons and prayers during Sunday services). They're not alone in trying to hijack health care reform — anti-choice groups across the country are doing everything they can to undermine women's health care. These attacks aren't going to let up — so we can't, either.

Please, make the call today — and then keep calling 'til we get it done.

With the House vote fast approaching and senators still negotiating, this is a critical time for the women, men, and teens who rely on Planned Parenthood. Thank you for standing strong with us today.
