If You Have Never Taken Action Before, TODAY IS THE DAY To Do It
This Saturday, the US House of Representatives is going to vote on a healthcare reform bill. We need your voice to be heard! Please call your Representative today and tell him or her that you support healthcare reform and do not want to see access to abortion services become a casualty of a so-called compromise on Capitol Hill.
Some bishops are urging members of Congress to vote against healthcare reform unless the bill adds more restrictions to women’s access to abortion. This would be a step backwards for women in the US.
A majority of American Catholics believe in providing comprehensive healthcare options. Catholic voters believe the US Catholic bishops are wrong on healthcare reform. Sixty-eight percent disapprove of US bishops saying that all Catholics should oppose the entire healthcare reform plan if it includes coverage for abortion services.

We know that Catholics support healthcare reform that includes coverage for abortion and other reproductive healthcare. The bishops are telling your representatives a different story—and claiming to speak for you. You need to let your representatives know what you really want in healthcare.
