"Once again, women's reproductive rights are under attack in this country," said NOW President Terry O'Neill. "Anti-choice legislators are using health care reform as an opportunity to further restrict women's access to abortion. One such plunderer is Pennsylvania Representative Joseph Pitts, who co-authored an amendment to deny millions of women abortion coverage, and then when the Stupak-Pitts Amendment passed, Pitts voted against the main bill anyway."

O'Neill continued: "Thanks in large part to Pitts' efforts, the House's version of health care reform now stands as the greatest threat to women's fundamental right to abortion in decades. That's why NOW and our allies will protest on Representative Pitts' home turf this Saturday."

Event: 

Press Conference/Rally to Denounce Stupak-Pitts Amendment to House Health Care Bill

 

Organizers: 

National Organization for Women
Pennsylvania NOW
Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania

 

Speakers:

Terry O'Neill, NOW president
Joanne Tosti-Vasey, PA NOW president
Lois Herr, candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania's 16th District
Louise Williams, Lancaster City Council president
Others to be announced

 

Date/Time:

Saturday, Nov. 21, 10:30 am - 11:30 am

 

Location:

Chester County Courthouse, 2 North High St., West Chester, Pa., 19380

 

"NOW is working overtime to ensure that an amendment similar to Stupak-Pitts is not included in the Senate's version of health care reform or the final bill," said O'Neill. "But it's also critical that we send a message to those who initiated this attack: We will not go back and we will remember."
