Every year, politicians in Congress use our nation's budget process to deny coverage of abortion for those who get their insurance or health care through the federal government.
Some people in Washington don't want abortion to be legal at all, so they promote insurance coverage bans to push it out of reach for many. In fact, denying Medicaid coverage of abortion forces one in four poor women to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term.
For a woman to be able to make a real decision based on what's best for her and her family, she needs to be able to afford it. And when people can plan if and when to have children, it's good for them and for society as a whole.
However we feel about abortion, politicians shouldn't deny a woman's health coverage just because she's poor.
Join us! Tell Congress to stop interfering with personal health care decisions and lift the restrictions on abortion coverage.
I am writing to urge you to stop denying abortion coverage to low-income women enrolled in Medicaid and oppose any other attempts to deny federal insurance coverage of abortion.
When it comes to the most important decisions in life, such as becoming a parent, it is vital that a woman is able to consider all the options available to her, regardless of how little money she makes.

Please end the bans that interfere with a woman's ability to make her own health care decisions.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
