Back To the Dark Ages

I don’t normally ask my readers to get political, but this is ridiculous. It’s about having access to birth control when and where you need it. It’s about making your own decisions, about planning to have a family when YOU are ready.

Birth control does NOT EQUAL abortion, people! So why can’t our brilliant President figure that out????

Ugh.

Can you imagine living in a place where birth control is considered an “abortion” and health insurers won’t cover it? Where even rape victims are denied emergency contraception?

It seems unbelievable, but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine “abortion” to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women’s reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. And this proposed “rule change” doesn’t need congressional approval.

I just signed a message to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, whose department is considering this rule change, telling him: “Contraception is NOT abortion.” Can you add your voice to this cause?
