Obama Administration Applies Stupak Amendment to High Risk Pools

The following post on RH Reality Check explains why the most recent anti-choice act to come out of the Obama administration is such a slap in the face for all of us who spent time and money fighting for reproductive rights in healthcare reform.  Co-chair Meghan and I were in DC on two separate occasions to lobby our legislators to exclude Stupak-like provisions in the healthcare reform.  Other taskforce members like Michelle, Stacy, Esty, Dan, and Sabrina organized in NY and DC toward the same goal.  It seems our efforts were fruitless since the President many of us worked hard to elect lied about being pro-choice and decided to throw women under the bus.
