New Bill, New Attacks on Women's Health

| | Comments (8) | TrackBacks (0)

This morning, the anti-choice leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives decided to modify a provision in the "Stupak on Steroids" agenda that would redefine what constitutes rape

At the same time, these anti-choice politicians opened a new attack on women's health. They added a new provision to H.R. 358, which was introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania. The new H.R. 358 would allow hospitals to refuse to provide abortion care even when it's necessary to save a woman's life!  

Anti-choice politicians have gone from redefining rape to denying abortion care to women who will die without it. When it comes to attacking women's freedom and privacy, these politicians know no bounds. This debate is just getting started. Any member of Congress who has signed his or her name to this agenda must be held accountable for such extreme attacks against women's reproductive-health services. 

Stay tuned: we're monitoring the "Stupak on Steroids" agenda closely, and will keep you informed about its multi-pronged attacks on women's freedom and privacy.
