Action Alert: Support the Contraception is Prevention campaign!


  Love responsibly and take action on Valentine's Day!
Support the Contraception is Prevention Campaign!

The health reform law is supposed to make women's preventive health care - including comprehensive contraceptive care - available without co-pays and other out-of-pocket costs.  Speak up to make sure that this will include comprehensive contraceptive care. This change would make prescription contraceptives affordable and ensure that every woman has access to the contraceptive method that works best for her.

On Valentine's Day, and through Valentine's week, you can show your support in two ways:
We're on the edge of an historic advance for women's health, but once again the health system is slower to respond our health care needs than men's.  Speak out on Valentine's Day this year and let policymakers know that by Valentine's Day next year the law should extend preventive health protections to women too!

The status of women in many economies across the world is negligible at best. As a supporter of women's rights I wanted to reach out to you and see if you were interested in an article that I have recently written.

This article discusses some of the issues surrounding this idea, as well as current efforts to improve the lives and livelihoods of women from an educational, social and economic stance.

Please let me know if you'd consider this going up on (, as I believe this is an important issue to open up discussion on and I think it is an article that both you and your readers will find interesting as well as informative.
