Call the Senate: Don't Let Women Lose Coverage

Dear all,

I hope you find this information useful.  Contacting your senators does not take long -- you can do this during your regular procrastination from homework.

See you at the club fair next Wednesday!

Much love,

Dear Sabrina,

They called their senators—will you?

Bury ObamaCare with Kennedy

We cannot let anti-choice politicians impose a new abortion ban through health-care reform.

Dial (202) 224-3121 to tell Sen. Schumer to oppose any attempt to take away abortion coverage from women who already have it.

Call your senator now!

Anti-choice politicians have drawn a line in the sand: they won't be happy until women who now have private insurance coverage for abortion lose it in the new health-care system.1

The stakes for women could not be higher in the health-care debate.

That's why we're meeting with key lawmakers all day today to drive the point home—and making sure that anti-choice legislators don't succeed in banning private insurance companies from covering abortion care in a reformed health-care system.

But we need your phone call right now to back us up.

Click here to call your senator, who is on the committee that will take up health care next, right now.

If you've never called your senator before, it's a LOT easier than you might think. It takes just about one minute.

Here's what to do:

  1. Call (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to Sen. Schumer's office.
  2. Tell the staff person who answers the phone where you're calling from, and that you strongly urge your senator to oppose any attempts to take away abortion coverage from women who already have it.
  3. Most calls will end right there, but if you like you can also mention that reproductive-health care should be treated like any other health-care service in the new system – not singled out for exclusion on political grounds.
  4. After you're done, click here to let us know you called. This step is so important – please don't forget!

Thank you so much for your ongoing support and activism—I know we can get this done together.

My best,

Nancy Keenan

P.S. Your call today, along with our meetings with lawmakers, the letters of tens of thousands of other pro-choice activists, and our earned media strategy will have a big impact on members of Congress—but keeping anti-choice politicians at bay is an ongoing struggle. Donate now to help us continue our advocacy and other efforts on behalf of women's reproductive rights.
