New Poster: “Thank you, Big O! For Stopping Insurance Companies from Denying Coverage Based on Pre-Existing Conditions”


No Comments

It’s easy to lose track of all the things Pres. Obama has already accomplished, even in the face of “I’ll kill us both if I have to” opposition from the Republican leadership. So this campaign is a series of reminders of how much we have to celebrate. Yay!

New Poster: “Should You Have to Prove To the IRS That You Were Raped?”


1 Comment


Should rape and incest survivors be forced to prove that they were assaulted to the IRS? Amazingly, the Republicans in the House of Representatives have answered with a resounding “Yes!” HR 3, the bill that includes this provision, has now passed in the House.

Here’s how it would work: HR 3 imposes tax penalties on small businesses and individuals who buy abortion coverage with their OWN money—with exceptions only for cases of rape, incest, or when a woman’s life is in danger.

The result? Survivors of rape and incest who seek abortions could be forced to detail their assaults and provide proof to IRS investigators.

Tell the Senate to stand up against this terrible bill, and speak out against the Republican war on women. Please sign the MoveOn.org petition today.

IRS Abortion Audits Gaining Support in US Congress


3 Comments

If H.R. 3 becomes law, IRS agents conducting audits on women would have to figure out if they had ever used any tax credit or benefit to pay for an abortion. And if a woman had used any kind of tax benefit or credit to pay for an abortion, she would have to provide documentation that she was the victim of rape or incest, or that the termination was necessary to save her life.  This measure now has 221 co-sponsors.

Republicans Vote for More Violence Against Women


No Comments

What else happens when we defund Planned Parenthood? Because of the many different programs that Panned Parenthood administers, the ramifications are vast. Are our friends among the Republican rank-and-file in favor of more violence against women and children? That seems unlikely. More probably, domestic violence is just another pawn in the relentless power plays by the right-wing elites.

There’s a wave of legislative attacks on women’s rights happening right now. The current move by a small group of older males to seize control of the lives and sexuality of all women is gathering force, and the intent is as ugly as that of any Bronze Age patriarch.

OHIO: Republicans are launching five separate bills aimed at restricting access to abortions, including a controversial measure banning the procedure as early as six weeks after conception.” One proposed law would outlaw abortions from the moment a fetus’ heartbeat is detected.

SOUTH DAKOTA: Legislation seeks to redefine the definition of “justifiable homicide” to the defense of an “unborn child.” Abortion-rights advocates immediately described the pending statute as “an invitation to murder abortion providers.”

IOWA: A panel of the state House Human Resources Committee approved language that would criminalize doctors who perform abortions.

FLORIDA: An ordained minister, who is also a Republican lawmaker, has introduced the Florida For Life Act, which seeks to outlaw most abortions.

MONTANA, OKLAHOMA, FLORIDA, TEXAS, IOWA, NORTH DAKOTA: New “personhood” bills define “personhood” at a fetus’s earliest moments – even earlier than the current test set forth by the Supreme Court.

NATIONAL: One bill would prevent women from purchasing insurance that includes abortion coverage in the new insurance exchanges even if they’re using their own money. This kind of restriction could lead to insurance companies dropping abortion coverage entirely. The same bill would also levy a special tax on small businesses and individuals who purchase insurance coverage that includes abortion. Another bill would, incredibly, allow hospitals to turn away a woman seeking an abortion, even if she’ll die without it—a major change from current law.

On January 1st, 2011, a whole slough of new reforms snapped into place. Among them, it is now law that health insurance companies have to spend at least 80% of your premiums on caring for you. Their operating costs and profits are restricted to the other 20%. This landmark legislation has been a long time coming. Share the good news with your friends! Go to download page
