Abortion In Health Reform - How Did Your Representative Vote?





Over the weekend, men got further than ever in their journey toward affordable, accessible, and comprehensive health care.

Women? Not so much.

Anti-choice Members of Congress rolled back the clock on coverage of abortion services that millions of women currently have. 

Find out how your Representative voted – and tell them we won’t tolerate women’s rights being taken away.

On Saturday, the House of Representatives passed a major health care reform bill, bringing us one step closer to ending higher premiums based on gender, denials by insurance companies for having had a Caesarean section or suffered domestic abuse under the guise that these were “pre-existing conditions,” and other major protections for women.

But anti-choice forces used this major advance to subvert essential reproductive health care for women. An amendment, which passed at the last minute, takes away women's ability to purchase coverage for abortion care with their own funds in the health insurance exchanges and public plan that the legislation created.

Where did your Representative stand? Find out – and thank those who stood up for women. And tell the others you're deeply disappointed by their votes.

The Senate takes up health care legislation next. We will not rest until women have health care reform that meets their essential needs, including their reproductive health care needs.
