Action Alert: Tell Congress Women's Health Matters In Health Care Reform

Planned Parenthood® of New York City

Our partners in Albany, Family Planning Advocates of New York State, are calling on supporters to help get the word out about health care reform. Please take a few minutes to find out how you can use your voice to protect access to our services.

Congress is heading home for August recess without taking action on health care reform. Planned Parenthood's role in this reform process is to ensure that comprehensive reproductive health services remain available for all women and families. August is a critical time when your Member of Congress will be home, hearing from constituents on this important issue. We need your help to send the message to Congress that Women's Health Matters!

Lately, anti-choice forces and lawmakers have come together in a dangerous attempt to halt our efforts, threatening to take away women's access to essential services like cancer screenings, contraception and abortion.

Time is of the essence. The public and Congress need to know that millions of women across the country depend on community health centers like Planned Parenthood for their reproductive health care and, in many cases, for their primary health care.

Writing a letter to the editor of your local paper can have a big impact in the little time that Congress is home. And, sending a letter is easy. In just a few clicks you can send a personalized letter to your local newspaper. Please take a moment to help spread the word about how important it is to include this type of care in health care reform.

Women shouldn't be worse off after health care reform than they are today.


Spread the word. Visit the web address below to tell your friends about this.

If you received this message from a friend, you can sign up for Planned Parenthood of New York City Action Network.
