Starting August 1st, most health insurance plans will begin to cover contraception as part of women's preventive care -- with no copay or deductible.
Women will see this benefit the first time their insurance plan renews -- marking a huge step forward for the more than 50 percent of women between 18 and 34 years old who say they've struggled to afford birth control.
That's something everyone should feel pretty good about, right?
Reality check: Not everyone.
While the President is fighting to make sure more women can afford the health care they need -- and make their own health choices -- Mitt Romney and his allies across the country are working tirelessly to roll back every step of the progress we've made.
Sign on, and stand with the only candidate in this presidential race who respects women's health care choices: President Barack Obama.
I pledge to stand with President Obama this November.
He's the only candidate who is standing up for a woman's right to make the health care choices that are right for her -- not politicians or her insurance company.

Women across the country can't afford to let Mitt Romney and his allies erase the progress we've made -- that's why I'm fighting back.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
