Take a Stand Against Stupak
This amendment will dial back women's access to abortion care far beyond the limitations that already exist under federal law by banning any plan purchased with a federal subsidy from covering abortion care, even making it largely impossible for women to use their own dollars to obtain abortion coverage.
Access to abortion faced a bitter fight in the House of Representatives, where our New York delegation held strong in admirably opposing Stupak-Pitts: with the exception of Peter King (NY-3) and Chris Lee (NY-26), both of whom voted for the insidious amendment, New York's entire congressional delegation voted to oppose it.
Now, we have to put up the same resistance in the Senate. With your activism and support, pro-choice senators can still ensure that health care reform does not come at an unacceptably high cost to women.
