Action Alert: Please Sign for Native American Women

Please sign this very important petition calling for access to emergency contraception for Native American women.  Native Americans must use the Indian Health Service (IHS) for their health care and many IHS facilities on reservations are denying them access to Plan B.  This work is being spearheaded by one of our Native American Women's Task Force members, Charon Asetoyer.

Thanks to Pat Reuss (long-time NOW activist at the heart of passing VAWA, and still working hard to include minorities in VAWA), who has also been using her networks asking people to sign.

I signed this petition and hope you will join me.  Native women deserve over
the counter EC like everyone else.
