Five Details Tucked Away In The CRomnibus That Affect Abortion, Birth Control And Sex Ed
Turns out Congress put a lot of stuff in the CRomnibus that affects women's health. Some of it is good, but some is very bad.
But here's the interesting part: Congress put a lot of stuff in the CRomnibus on women's health. Some of it is good, some bad. To help you see for yourself, we're separating the good from the bad in the CRomnibus.
Extending Equitable Abortion Coverage to Peace Corps Volunteers
Not Cutting Funds for Family Planning & Comprehensive Sex Ed
Continuing Harmful Restrictions on Federal Funding for Abortion
Allowing Insurance Companies Not to Cover Abortion, & Allowing Health Care Providers Not to Provide Abortion
Funding for Ineffective Abstinence-Only Until Marriage Sex Ed
BOTTOM LINE: It’s Something We Can Build On
Maybe the best thing we can say about Congress is that they left town in time for us to celebrate the holidays with our friends, our family who we love, and those other relatives. But as you start your last-minute holiday shopping, know that we're gearing up for a fight: Not over the last tickle-me-and-more-stuff Elmo (or whatever the kids want these days), but for reproductive rights in 2015.
You can bet that Planned Parenthood Action Fund and its millions of supporters are ready to hold politicians accountable for any attacks on women's health when they come back to Washington in the New Year. Join Planned Parenthood Action Fund, in the fight for women's health and rights.
