GOP attacks 47 million women’s preventive care under Obamacare

Today, 47 million women now benefit from the guaranteed coverage of preventive services, including contraception coverage without co-pays, under Obamacare. The GOP’s response is to do their best to find a way to get rid of it. NARAL has a petition to stop their efforts, read it, sign it and pass it on to everyone you know.


Here’s what we’ve been working toward: Today, when many women go to the pharmacy to pick up their birth-control prescription, they will not be charged a copay.

It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it? The first phase of President Obama’s no-cost birth-control policy – the one you worked so hard to win – officially rolls out today.

But anti-choice politicians in Congress have introduced a new bill to take away this guarantee from all women.

Please tell your representative to stop attacks on no-cost birth-control coverage for women.

Anti-choice Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) is taking women’s birth-control coverage head on. His new bill would allow any employer to refuse to provide this coverage for their own personal reasons. 

This bill would allow the person who runs a fast-food restaurant or sporting-goods store to block his employees from getting insurance plans that cover birth control!

Help us stop the Sensenbrenner anti-birth control bill now.

If the Sensenbrenner bill sounds familiar, that’s because it is. It is very similar to the Blunt amendment that we defeated in the U.S. Senate this spring. If it goes into effect, it would potentially place millions of Americans’ contraceptive coverage in jeopardy.

We may have stopped the Blunt amendment, but anti-contraception politicians never stopped moving toward their goal of overturning this policy. The Sensenbrenner bill is the most recent bill attacking the birth-control benefit – and it might not be the last.

That’s why we have to speak out loudly now. Don’t let anti-contraception politicians use this pivotal moment to build opposition. Please tell your member of Congress that Rep. Sensenbrenner’s anti-birth-control bill is bad for women.
