ACTION ALERT: It’s Discrimination Against Women and We Won’t Stand for It
The U.S. Senate will soon vote on an amendment that would limit access to contraceptive services for women if any employer or insurance plan has a “religious or moral objection” to it.
This open-ended invitation to cut back on preventative health care services for women must be defeated. We need your help.
But the amendment by Senators Blunt and Rubio actually goes even farther. If an employer or insurance plan has a “religious or moral objection,” then any health care service can be excluded from coverage from the Affordable Care Act, our nation’s historic new health care law which aims to ensure quality health care for all.
Allowing employers and insurance plans to pick and choose what should be covered will not only lead to discrimination against women, it will shred the essential protections we fought so hard for in health care reform.
Tell your Senators to oppose the Blunt-Rubio amendment!
The Blunt-Rubio amendment would limit access to contraceptive health care for women and would deny Americans access to needed health care coverage based on ill-defined religious or moral objections. This legislation should be soundly rejected by the Senate.
