You know what they say – ladies first.
The Senate has finally begun debating the historic health care reform bill. The first amendment offered is the Women’s Health Amendment – which will help make sure that key women’s preventive health is covered and affordable in the Senate health care reform bill.
Tell your Senators to vote YES on the Women’s Health Amendment – and help ensure that women’s preventive health needs are met in the Senate health care reform bill.
The amendment guarantees access to critical preventive screenings for women by ensuring that they are covered and affordable. We need you to tell your Senators to vote YES on the Women’s Health Amendment and help us get one step closer to health care reform that works for women.
This is the first amendment, but it surely won’t be the last. We’ll keep updating you as the debate moves forward. Thank you for continuing to fight with us – with your help, we are getting closer to affordable, accessible, and comprehensive health care for all.
