Anti-choice lawmakers have filed 36 anti-choice amendments in committee, including Senator Tom Coburn's outrageous "Office of Unborn Children's Health."
A group of anti-choice Democrats has vowed to bring down health-care reform unless it bans abortion care currently covered by most health plans.
If they have their way, women could lose coverage for reproductive-health care -- even if their private health insurance already covers it!
Tell your lawmakers to oppose ANY anti-choice attacks on health-care legislation, including attempts to take away coverage from women who already have it in their private-insurance plans.
Dear [Decision Maker],
I'm writing to urge you to oppose any attempt to ban reproductive-health services in the new healthcare system.
I am concerned about the repeated efforts of some senators to use healthcare reform as an opportunity to restrict access to abortion and family planning. Some proposals would even have the effect of denying services to women whose private plans already cover reproductive-health care.
Reproductive-health care should be treated like any other healthcare service in the new system - not singled out for exclusion on political grounds.

As you work to ensure that more Americans have health insurance, please don't let politics interfere with this important legislation, and don't allow women's health to be put in jeopardy.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
