On November 7, the House passed the Stupak Amendment to their health care reform bill, representing one of the biggest setbacks to women’s health in recent decades – unless we stand together and stop it.
That’s why I just signed the petition Senator Barbara Boxer has launched FightForWomensHealth.com, calling for the removal of the Stupak Amendment from any bill that reaches the President’s desk.
The House amendment would tell women who participate in the new health insurance exchange that they can’t even use their own funds to buy a policy that offers abortion coverage.
In short, the Stupak Amendment would take away health insurance coverage that women already have. This is a huge step back for women’s health.
