Now It's Back to Business

Got this from NARAL Pro-Choice America. The title like will take you to the NARAL site guide.

"Yesterday, the Bush administration took the first step in pushing through its new anti-choice regulation.

Here's the deal—the regulation left out the most egregious anti-birth control provision that was present in the first version.

Thanks to opposition expressed by nearly 30,000 NARAL Pro-Choice America activists, more than 120 House members and 28 senators (pro-choice and pro-life alike), governors, state attorneys general, state legislators, members of the choice community, medical and public-health organizations, and the faith community, it is clear that the Bush administration is running scared.

Now the bad news—we're not out of the woods yet. This new version fails to give assurances that current laws about abortion will not be stretched to cover birth control, too.

We have 30 days to tell Bush's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to include explicit language in the regulation to ensure that birth control is not at risk. Please send a message to HHS right now.

We must show Bush that the vast majority of Americans oppose harmful and politically-driven attacks on reproductive freedom.

Thank you for everything you do.

My best,

Nancy Keenan
President, NARAL Pro-Choice America"
