Irony of the Birth Control Mandate — Take Action

I was sitting in urgent care earlier today and I couldn’t get over the fact that the woman in front of me was 19 weeks pregnant and had to pay a $15 co-pay in order to see a doctor after she fell, couldn’t walk, and was having severe back and stomach pain. While in contrast, August 1st Health and Human Services (HHS) mandated that private health plans will cover “preventative services”: contraceptives, sterilization, and abortifacients with NO co-pay or out of pocket expenses for these services.

Now, I see nothing wrong with co-pays. But I find it ridiculous that a woman wouldn’t have to pay a dime to be sterilized, chemically abort her child, or prevent her body from naturally beginning human life while a woman who is pregnant, and severely hurt, has to pay to even get in the door at urgent care.

Don’t let your tax dollars pay for this birth control mandate. Defend the consciences of millions of Americans who do not want to pay for birth control with their tax dollars. Take three quick and easy actions:

  1. Sign the petition to President Obama’s Administration and Secretary Sebelius to stop the birth control mandate.
  2. Health and Human Services is accepting comments on the issue at hand. Please send an email through NCHLA’s action center in opposition to this mandate.
  3. Post the link to this article: http://timmerie.com/2011/09/action-alert-stop-birth-control-mandate.html on FacebookTwitter, and other social networking sites so that others can take action as well.
