President (Idiot) Bush has issued a regulatory change that lets health care providers define abortion, which could threaten access to birth control and broader reproductive health care, and allow federal funding for so-called "crisis pregnancy centers" that refuse to inform patients of or provide patients with a full range of reproductive health care options.
There's a 30-day comment period before the new regulation takes effect, during which Planned Parenthood and other groups are raising a massive outcry in defense of women's health care.
THAT OFFICIAL COMMENT PERIOD ENDS AT MIDNIGHT ON SEPTEMBER 25. Can you submit your comment right now?http://www.ppaction.org/campaign/frcp08af_adv1
When more and more families are uninsured and having difficulty accessing health care at all, and when at least one in four teenage girls has a sexually transmitted disease -- implementing a rule that will limit access to services is utterly perplexing, unconscionable, and just plain wrong. It will only hurt the women who most need help at times when they are most vulnerable.
I absolutely believe it's our job to help stop it. Please join me in telling that Idiot President "NO" which is something he isn't used to hearing!
Thanks so much!
