Act Now to Stop Bill Restricting Abortion Access

This is being voted on RIGHT NOW.

Today, on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, House Republicans abruptly abandoned voting on the 20-week abortion ban when GOP women withdrew their sponsorship of the bill because it was too extreme. In a late-night maneuver, Republican leadership decided to bring up a vote on H.R. 7, which would drastically restrict a woman's ability to purchase comprehensive health insurance on the insurance exchanges.

Although H.R. 7 supposedly prevents taxpayer funding for abortion, the bill actually prevents women from using their own money to purchase health insurance that includes abortion care

H.R. 7 would eliminate tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for women and families who purchase insurance plans that include abortion coverage through the newly created health insurance marketplaces. It would also force private multi-state insurance plans that participate in the marketplaces to stop providing abortion coverage and withhold the Small Business Tax Credit to those businesses that offer comprehensive health insurance - which includes abortion - to their employees.

It's an absolute outrage.

Sign the petition below to let your representatives and senators know they can't take away a woman's ability to make her own private health care choices.
