House to vote on Thursday “Let Women Die” bill

damegreywulf:

From NARAL Pro-Choice America:

“It’s no exaggeration. Rather than tackling our country’s urgent challenges, anti-choice House Speaker John Boehner is leading another attack on women’s freedom and privacy.

The latest bill would allow a hospital to refuse a woman life-saving, emergency abortion care even if she will die without it.

Your lawmaker is set to vote on this bill on Thursday.

The bill, officially named H.R.358, would have a profound impact on women’s access to abortion care. If passed, it also effectively would ban insurance coverage of abortion in the new health-care system, denying abortion coverage to millions of women.

Boehner’s bill is heartless. Women should have the option of choosing a health-insurance plan that covers abortion care. But this bill makes that next to impossible.

And allowing hospitals to refuse to provide abortion care, even when necessary to save a woman’s life, is unconscionable. Can you imagine facing a complication in pregnancy, and being told that your hospital refuses to provide you with abortion care you need to save your life – or the life of a woman you love?

I need you to take action right now. No matter where your lawmaker stands on choice, every single representative needs to hear from his or her constituents right now.

In solidarity,

Nancy Keenan
President, NARAL Pro-Choice America”

*pregnant people, not just women.

But yeah, what the actual fuck.
