Tell the White House: No abortion coverage restrictions for women with pre-existing conditions
The Obama Administration has applied a Stupak-like ban on abortion coverage for women with serious health problems who have no other choice but to use high-risk insurance pools. This goes beyond the existing provisions restricting abortion coverage.
Last week, the Administration declared a ban on abortion coverage for women in high-risk pools except in cases of rape, incest or danger to the woman’s life.
We defeated Stupak in Congress and we will not accept any further restrictions to abortion access!
-It is unacceptable to treat women with pre-existing conditions differently than those who purchase insurance from state health care exchanges;
-Abortion is a basic health care service that one out of three women will utilize in their lifetime;
-This new ban takes away a woman's ability to access abortion even with her own funds.
Join us in sending a message to President Obama that we will not accept further restrictions to our right to choose.
