Tell President Obama: NO Abortion-Coverage Ban in High-Risk Pools

The Obama administration just announced it will exclude abortion coverage in the temporary health-insurance pools that will transition us into the new health-care system.

This policy means that women who are part of these pools because they have significant health problems, such as diabetes or cancer, will not be able to access abortion care, even if their health is at further risk 

The administration’s policy is similar to the ban proposed by anti-choice Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.). That’s unacceptable – even if it applies to a program that will last only about three years.

Abortion is the most common surgical procedure women receive. At a time when the country is on the cusp of implementing nationwide health-insurance coverage, we should not treat abortion care differently in the new high-risk pools.

Help us fight back. Tell President Obama that the abortion-coverage ban was not part of the agreement on health reform and that he should not exclude abortion coverage from newly created high-risk pools.

Dear President Obama

I am outraged to learn that your administration has decided to exclude abortion coverage for some women who will be covered by the new high-risk pools. This policy means that women who are part of these pools because they have significant health problems, such as diabetes or cancer, will not be able to access abortion care, even if their health is at further risk.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
