TONIGHT: Conference Call for Activists on Health Care Reform

If you missed this Action Alert in your inboxes this morning, please help us get the word out about this conference call! We invite all our activists to join us in this call tonight to get the 411 on Health Care Reform! - Val

We need your help! On November 7, the U.S. House took an historic step in passing its version of health care reform. Unforgivably, this major victory was achieved by selling out the health of women and passing sweeping new restrictions on abortion access.

Federal funding already cannot be used to pay for abortions. But with Stupak/Pitts, no plan in the health insurance exchange could offer abortion coverage.

Even worse, it would prevent women who receive federal subsidies for insurance from purchasing plans that cover abortion - even if they use their own money!

Confused? Get your questions answered tonight! Call 218-862-1300 at 8pm EST and use the conference code 789637. Be sure to RSVP.

Health Care Reform is not as complicated as it seems, and this is an opportunity to activate on your campuses! We welcome all feminist activists to join us for an informative conference call.

RSVP now!

The purpose of the call is to:

1. Clarify the Stupak/Pitts amendment and its impact.
2. Update you on the Senate version of health care reform.
3. Outline where we go from here - and the role each of us has to play to protect women's health and rights.
4. Share ideas about how to activate your campus and community to make sure women's ability to access abortions is not only for the wealthy.

TONIGHT (Monday, Nov. 23rd) at 8pm EST, the Feminist Majority Foundation, Advocates for Youth, and Choice USA will be hosting this call for youth activists nationwide to shed some light on the critical need for activism around the health care bill!

There's still time to stop this restriction from being included in the final health care bill! But we have to act now, and we need your help!

One more time: to join us, call 218-862-1300 at 8pm EST and use the conference code 789637. Be sure to RSVP.

We need to make sure our voices are heard on our campuses, in our communities and throughout the halls of Congress.
