Add your name to petition opposing a ban on abortion coverage in high-risk pools


NARAL Pro-Choice america


It's official.
Help us reach 25,000 signatures by Friday, August 6.
Just last week, the Obama administration published its new policy banning abortion coverage in the temporary high-risk insurance pools.
Now is your chance to speak out. I need your name next to mine on our petition opposing this new policy.
The new health-reform law has the potential to improve women's lives. But this new policy announced officially yesterday means that women who are part of these pools for the next three years because they have significant health problems, such as diabetes or cancer, will not be able to access abortion care, even if their health is at further risk. 
More than 38,800 activists have already called on the Obama administration to remove the abortion-coverage ban from high-risk pools. Now, the policy has been published, and it's time for public comment.
Help us send a clear and powerful message that women's access to abortion should not be used as a bargaining chip in the new health-care system.
Add your name by Friday, August 6 to the petition we will send to comment on the policy that bans abortion coverage in high-risk pools.
Thanks for standing with us as we stand strong in support of women's access to insurance coverage for abortion.
