The Fight For Healthcare Reform Continues

 

  

   

 

 


 NWLC STATEMENT

 

Washington, DC Ã‚– The following is a statement by Marcia D. Greenberger, Co-President of the National WomenÂ’s Law Center (NWLC):

 

“Reports of the death of healthcare reform are greatly exaggerated.

 

“The key reason why health reform is not dead—and cannot be dead—is that the 31 million plus reasons why we need health reform did not disappear with yesterdayÂ’s news of the Massachusetts Senatorial election. The problems of a dearth of affordable health care, rampant insurance discrimination, gender rating, and insurance coverage that doesnÂ’t meet the needs of women are still here. 

 

“For women, the reasons why the healthcare reform fight must continue are particularly acute. Insurance discrimination for women with pre-existing conditions, like Chris Turner is still here. Turner couldnÂ’t get health insurance at any price because she had received treatment as a sexual assault survivor. 


“Skimpy or non-existent maternity coverage, like Sarah Wildman faced, is still here. Wildman spent $22,000 on the birth of her baby due to her insufficient health coverage.

 

“A woman like Peggy Robertson can still be denied coverage for having had a C-section. And Karen Harriman, a small business owner with an almost entirely female workforce, will still pay more to insure her employees simply because they are women. These practices must stop.

 

“Make no mistake, we remain determined. While yesterday’s election results may have been a surprise, an even bigger surprise awaits those who would say that health reform is dead. The fight for health reform is far from over.
