STOP THE STUPAK AMENDMENT!

THE FUTURE OF CHOICE AND WOMEN'S HEALTH IS IN THEIR HANDS.

When it passed a historic health care reform bill, the House also adopted the Stupak amendment, a dangerous piece of legislation that would ban abortion from private and public insurance plans for millions of American women. Fortunately, the fight for women's health didn't end in the House, and our sharp focus is now on the Senate. We are demanding that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ensure that language similar to the Stupak amendment does not become part of the Senate health care reform bill.

It's time for our leaders to stand up and ensure that women's health is treated fairly in health care reform.

President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi have the power to put a stop to the discriminatory Stupak ban - and it's up to us to help them do it. Click to sign our petition and join the millions of Americans who are speaking out to protect women's health and the right to choose.

Every signature counts. Please share this link to your pro-choice friends!
