Tell HHS: No Religious Exemption for Birth Control Coverage


NOW Action Alert

Tell HHS: No Religious Exemption for Birth Control Coverage

September 23, 2011

take action

Opponents of women's access to contraception have stepped up pressure on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to expand an exemption allowing some religious institutions to deny birth control insurance coverage to their employees. This exemption should not have been included in the HHS rules in the first place. But religious extremists are lobbying hard to convince HHS to completely remove the requirement for full insurance coverage of contraception from the new regulations. This would be a huge loss for women.

Take action NOW: Write your own comment or use NOW's sample comment below by cutting and pasting it into the appropriate space on the government regulations website. The deadline for comments is Sept. 30, so act NOW! Additional information is provided in the background section below.

 
Sample Comment:

Dear Secretary Sebelius:

I strongly urge you to make every effort to eliminate the imposition of an exemption for religious institutions in the HHS interim final rule on preventive health services [CMS-9992-IFC2] as it relates to insurance coverage for contraceptive services. The thousands of women who happen to work for Catholic and other religious institutions should not be disadvantaged by the federal government bending to a tiny minority of male church leaders who do not represent the views of a majority of the laity. Some 98 percent of sexually-active Catholic women utilize modern contraception and 68 percent support insurance coverage for contraception.

Birth control is basic health care for all women, and the federal government should not permit a solitary religious viewpoint to override good public health policy. Allowing certain faith-based organizations to avoid this statute is, in fact, promoting the private interests of a tiny religious minority. This exemption and all other refusal or conscience clauses infringe upon women's constitutional right to freedom of religion and freedom from religion. Religious as well as non-religious employees deserve equal access to contraceptive coverage. The federal government has the responsibility to ensure that all women who desire contraception coverage under the Affordable Care Act are guaranteed access. I hope that HHS will see the importance of this assurance and remove the exemption from the interim final rule (Docket I.D.= HHS-OS-2011-0023-0002).

Sincerely,
[Your name]

 
Background:

Last month, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) accepted a package of recommendations from the Institute of Medicine to require insurance coverage for contraceptive services and counseling, with no additional costs like co-payments or deductibles, as part of women's preventive health services when the new health exchanges are launched in 2014. The department is about to finalize an amendment to the interim final regulation [CMS-992-IFC2] that will make provision of this coverage mandatory, albeit with an exemption -- which NOW vigorously opposed -- for some religious institutions.

We recently learned that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has submitted a statement to HHS that the proposed exemption is too narrowly defined for some religious institutions and that the contraception coverage requirement should be eliminated completely. We are concerned that the USCCB and their extremist allies will be successful in persuading the department to expand the exemption -- or worse, back off entirely from requiring birth control coverage through health insurance plans offered under the Affordable Care Act.

While commending HHS for including contraception coverage, NOW President Terry O'Neill nonetheless criticized the exemption by stating, "no woman should be denied health care as basic as contraception, not even a woman who happens to work for a religious institution. It would be a tragedy if millions of women were denied affordable access to contraception because HHS is ready to give in to a tiny minority of religious extremists who oppose birth control."

Employees should not be disadvantaged because of the religious beliefs held by their employers. Affordable access is an important policy objective that advances a women's economic and education opportunities. The bishops claim to be advocating against contraceptive coverage on behalf of all Catholics, even though the majority of Catholics support access to family planning. Ninety-eight percent of sexually-active Catholic women have used some sort of modern method of birth control and 68 percent of Catholic voters support health insurance coverage for contraception, including birth control pills.

Please send a message to the Department of Health and Human Services that no exemption should be provided to any religious institution and that all women eligible for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act should have coverage for contraceptive services and counseling, among many other important women's preventive health services.

Take action NOW!

Congress' Deficit Supercommittee News, Women in Poverty & More


 POLICY / ADVOCACY UPDATE
1) DEFICIT SUPERCOMMITTEE WEBSITE
2) RECORD NUMBERS OF WOMEN IN POVERTY
3) PAID SICK DAYS LEGISLATION IN SEATTLE
 
REMINDER!
Don't forget to register for Thursday's Program
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio Talks New York
starting at 12:30 pm.  
 
1) DEFICIT SUPERCOMMITTEE LAUNCHES WEBSITE
Congress's supercommittee now has an online presence, as the deficit-busting panel launched its website last Tuesday.
 
The site came on the same day that the panel of 12 lawmakers held its first substantive hearing. The new website plans to stream the panel's public hearings. A number of lawmakers and advocacy groups had called on the supercommittee to conduct all its business in public, with some lawmakers even going so far as to introduce legislation to that effect.
 
The website also includes a form that allows the public to weigh in on the group's work. "Pass along your suggestions to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction," the site states on its front page, above a link leading to the form. "What can we do to reduce our nation's deficit?"
 
The supercommittee's website also archives previous hearings. A video of the panel's first hearing to establish its rules was posted on the site's front page when it went live. The site also includes a copy of those rules, as well as links to all 12 members' websites. Check it out here!
____________________________
 
2) RECORD NUMBERS OF WOMEN IN POVERTY
Record numbers of women lived in poverty – and extreme poverty – in 2010, according to an analysis of Census by the National Women's Law Center (NWLC). The figures show that U.S. women are hit hardest in every category, but much of the major media excluded this in their reports. (See Leslie Bennetts' article, "Women: The Invisible Poor".)
 
Here are some statistics from the Census Bureau:
  • The poverty rate among women climbed to 14.5 percent in 2010 from 13.9 percent in 2009, the highest in 17 years.
  • The extreme poverty rate among women climbed to 6.3 percent in 2010 from 5.9 percent in 2009, the highest rate ever recorded.
  • Over 17 million women lived in poverty in 2010, including more than 7.5 million in extreme poverty; extreme poverty means income below half the federal poverty line.
  • The percentage of women under 65 without health insurance increased from 19.2 percent in 2009 to 19.7 percent in 2010, the highest rate recorded in more than a decade.
  • Over 19 million women younger than 65 were without health care coverage in 2010.
  • Women working full-time year-round continued to be paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts.
These staggering numbers should send an "urgent wake-up call to Congress to tackle the immediate deficit facing this nation – the lack of jobs – by acting swiftly on President Obama's job creation proposals and passing a robust package that will put millions of American women and men back to work," says Joan Entmacher, NWLC Vice President for Family Economic Security.

3) PAID SICK DAYS LEGISLATION IN SEATTLE
Last week, Seattle's City Council voted in support of a robust paid sick days standard – and the mayor has voiced strong support for this critical legislation. In another victory for paid sick days across the country, this vote means nearly 190,000 workers will soon have the right to earn paid sick days in Seattle.
 
The WCC strongly supports paid sick days in NYC and continues to advocate for positive work-life policies.  We advocate for policies that do not force people to choose between their health and financial security. Parents shouldn't have to send their sick kids to school, and restaurant, day care and hospital workers should be able to stop working when sick.
 
We congratulate the city of Seattle on this important legislation, and we will continue to support paid sick days legislation in NYC.  Check out a project of the National Partnership for Women & Families – "Support Paid Sick Days" – to learn more about current campaigns. Click here!

Facebook pages that shouldn't exist

Facebook says that hate speech and incitements to violence are banned and will be removed from their site. So why are they maintaining a page called "Riding Your Girlfriend Softly Cause You Don't Want to Wake Her Up"? And another page about "throwing bricks at sluts" that includes a photo gallery of portraits asking "Bang or Brick"?

There has even been an organized effort to use Facebook’s own reporting system to flag these and other pages that encourage rape and violence against women so they’ll be taken down. But Facebook hasn’t done a thing.

Now, Change.org member John Raines is going straight to the top. He started a petition on Change.org telling Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take down these pages and take a stronger stand against violence against women.

Will you sign John’s petition to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg? Sign on, and tell Facebook to remove pages promoting rape and violence against women now.

When 1 in 3 American women will be sexually abused and/or assaulted in her lifetime, pages like these -- and the reactions they elicit -- are downright scary. Tens of thousands of people have "liked" these pages. Some people even use them as platforms to share rape fantasies and receive explicit tactics for how to carry them out.

John has seen the devastating impact of sexual violence and rape firsthand, on his own family. That's why he created this petition on Change.org to get Facebook to enforce its existing policies and to make it clear that content promoting rape and violence against women violates Facebook's Terms of Service and won't be tolerated.

Please sign John's petition. Tell Facebook to stop providing a platform to promote rape and violence against women.

Thanks for being a change-maker,

- Shelby and the Change.org team

Stop JC Penney and Forever 21 from putting more sexist clothes on their shelves


Girls are Allergic to Algebra?
Take action!

Clicking here will automatically add your name to this petition to JC Penney and Forever 21:

"Clearly something is broken if your companies are marketing shirts to young girls that read "Allergic to Algebra" or "I'm too pretty to do homework." You pulled those two products from the shelves after outraged customers complained, but you need to go further and make a public commitment to improve your review process and ensure you never again stock clothing for girls featuring sexist and demeaning slogans."

Take action now!

Learn more about this campaign

Dear Friend,

Just yesterday, retailer Forever 21 began offering for sale a shirt for girls emblazoned with the slogan "Allergic to Algebra." And a few weeks ago, JC Penney offered similar girls' shirts with the slogan "I'm too pretty to do homework, so my brother has to do it for me."

Sexist slogans like these play into and perpetuate the offensive stereotypes that women are innately bad at math or that being pretty is more important than being smart. By selling these shirts, the stores give their implicit support of these efforts to convince girls that, to be stylish and fit in, they must be bad at math or less interested than boys in academic achievement.

After backlash from outraged customers, the both shirts were pulled from the shelves and online stores.1 But how did the sexist shirts get there in the first place? Clearly, something is totally broken within the corporate culture of these retailers. There is no effective review process for the clothing sold at JC Penney and Forever 21 if offensive clothing like this that demeans young girls makes it to their shelves.

Tell the CEOs of JC Penney and Forever 21 that you will hold them accountable for the clothing that is sold in their stores. Demand they make a public commitment to keep sexist clothing for girls from making it to their shelves in the future. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

These retailers are clearly sensitive to public pressure, as evidenced by how quickly they pulled the shirts after a public backlash arose. But that's not good enough. We must pressure JC Penney and Forever 21 to make the changes necessary at corporate headquarters to ensure sexist shirts like these never even come close to making it to the shelves.

Dozens, perhaps hundreds, of people at JC Penney and Forever 21 encountered these shirts before they were made available to the public. Why didn't employees of these retailers at some point say, "Hey, are we really going to sell shirts to young girls that say 'I'm too pretty for homework' or 'Allergic to Algebra'?"

It's obvious that these shirts perpetuate offensive and harmful stereotypes about the ability of women to achieve academically relative to men. Of course, many studies have confirmed that these stereotypes are baseless, and that women's minds are just as well suited to performing academically as men's.

But, because popular culture is so powerful, many women and girls will conform to negative stereotypes of what a woman is supposed to achieve if they are continually reinforced. Stores like JC Penney and Forever 21 help shape that culture through the clothing they sell.

It's clear that these stores listen to public pressure, but we must pressure JC Penney and Forever 21 to take concrete steps to ensure that clothing this sexist never even comes close to making it onto shelves again.

Tell the CEOs of JC Penney and Forever 21 that you will hold them accountable for the clothing that is sold in their stores. Demand they make a public commitment to keep sexist clothing for girls from making it to their shelves in the future. Click here to automatically sign the petition.

Thank you for standing up to sexism.

Marriage Equality Achieved? Not So Fast!

Equality is THE LAW in NY State



This year the State of New York made the decision to recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry. It's now the law, and public officials must abide by it regardless of their personal prejudices.

sign the petition 3-d



This weekend we demanded that the Town Clerk of Ledyard, New York, Rose Marie Belforti, sign marriage licenses for same-sex couples looking to marry -- as the law dictates she must do -- or resign.

Belforti had previously stated that she would not sign licenses for same-sex couples and refused to do so for one couple on August 30. Even after numerous residents voiced their objections to the clerk's position at a town meeting just last night, it was clear that Ms. Belforti is sticking to her refusal to issue licenses and has no intention of resigning.

PFAW Foundation is stepping up the pressure with a petition to Town Clerk Belforti that will help us focus more attention on this issue. Please add your name to it right now!

Marriage equality is THE LAW in New York State, and couples like Katie Carmichael and Deirdre DiBiaggio, whom Belforti refused a marriage license, have the RIGHT to wed.

Public officials can't pick and choose what laws they want to follow. And Ms. Belforti has no place putting her personal prejudices over the hard-won legal rights of New York's same-sex couples. We'll pursue all necessary legal action to make sure those rights are protected and are working with the global law firm Proskauer Rose, LLP to achieve a swift remedy. We've also brought the issue the attention of New York's attorney general.

This year the State of New York made the decision to recognize the fundamental rights of gay and lesbian New Yorkers by finally allowing all couples to have equal access to the protections only marriage provides. We must be able to trust in our elected officials to uphold the people's laws.

Please join us in this fight. Sign the petition to Ledyard Town Clerk Belforti now telling her to do her job, follow the law and sign ALL legal marriage licenses, or else resign.

After you take action, it's critical that you help spread the word. We can't let elected officials at any level get away with illegally denying Americans' their rights because of their own personal prejudices.

Thank you for standing for Equality -- the American Way.

Sincerely,

Michael Keegan

P.S. Please notify us if you or someone you know has experienced the same problem in New York State. Email legal@pfaw.org.

Monthly Divorce/Child Custody Forum in Nassau County, Long Island - Monday, September 19th - 6:30 pm-9:00 pm

Divorce Forum Meeting
 
Sponsored by the National Organization for Women-NYS
(NOW-NYS)
 
 
  The next divorce/custody/support forum meeting will be held on 
Monday, September 19th ,  6:30 pm - 9:00 pm. 
 
As always there is an experienced matrimonial attorney attending to answer your questions.  Hope to see you there.  Call Tracy for location.
    
Please RSVP Tracy at  (516) 233-9343
 
 
 
What the Forum is NOT: free legal representation.

What the Forum IS:  It is an opportunity to learn how to help yourself navigate the murky waters of the court systems procedures and rules, to learn what options may be available to you, and to get answers to legal questions from an experienced matrimonial attorney free of charge.

It is also an opportunity to occasionally be involved in actions like supporting legislation so desperately needed to bring women a level playing field in courts.

It is an opportunity to network with women who are facing the same challenges that you are, and other women who often have the same judge, attorney, forensic and/or law guardian as you do.

 
Want to be involved in an important survey that addresses this issue?
 
Go to our  home page www.nownys.org and download the survey, fill it out and send it to us asap.

Tell Senators: No Abortion Funding Ban


NOW Action Alert

Tell Senators: No Abortion Funding Ban

Keep Abortion Legal

TAKE ACTION:

Once again, abortion rights opponents are plotting to use the federal budgeting process as a means to punish low-income women in the District of Columbia.

In an 11th-hour spending deal last spring, the radical right succeeded in tacking on an undemocratic ban on D.C. using its own tax dollars to cover abortion care. The ban overrules the authority of D.C.'s locally elected officials, disregards the principles of the Home Rule Act, and denies Medicaid-eligible women access to critical reproductive health care. Now, abortion rights opponents want to extend this ban by including it in the 2012 budget, which the Senate Appropriations Committee is taking up this week.

If your senators are on the committee, please call them as soon as possible, and tell them you support D.C. home rule and abortion rights for all women, regardless of income.
