Don't Allow Gender Discrimination in the New health care reform Package! Contact Congress #hcr


Make a difference.
Keep the Pressure on! Don't Allow Gender Discrimination in the New Health Care Reform Package! Send a Message to Congress NOW!
ARE YOU AS MAD AS WE ARE ABOUT THE GENDER DISCRIMINATION IN THE HEALTH CARE REFORM?


Congress Needs to Hear from YOU!

Mad As Hell and Not Going to Take It Anymore!
Health Care Reform Bill Must Eliminate Gender Discrimination


Tell members of your congressional delegation that throwing women under the bus in health care reform legislation is not acceptable. Contrary to what women's advocates have repeatedly been told, it now appears health care legislation allows gender rating after all. This, coupled with the anti-abortion rights language and other problems, renders the bill not worth passing unless these harmful provisions are removed.

President Obama stated in his major health policy address that reform legislation would prohibit gender rating, a practice that results in charging women up to 48 percent higher premiums. The Senate bill would allow gender discrimination for employees of companies with more than 100 employees, affecting tens of millions of women. This is unacceptable.


Tell your senators and representatives that you will seek out progressive, feminist candidates who support women's equal and affordable health care, including coverage of abortion care, to replace them -- if they support extreme restrictions on insurance coverage of abortion care and fail to eliminate gender rating in the final bill.
