Take Action: Stop the Bush administration’s bad medicine

leave a comment »

I am writing to oppose the so-called “conscience” rule recently submitted by Secretary Leavitt. This regulation poses a serious threat to women’s health care by limiting the rights of patients to receive complete and accurate health information and services.

At a time when more and more families are uninsured and under economic assault, we find our health care system is in crisis and our president taking steps to deny access to basic care. Women’s ability to manage their own health care is at risk of being compromised by politics and ideology.

Back in the 1930s a birth control pill was available made from a natural bean, which however, only the very, very rich could afford, due to it’s difficulty in production. It was not “outlawed” then because only a few could afford it, and besides we let the rich in America do whatever they want, and the last thing a politician would want would be to lose their donations and to be “run up the flagpole” in the US press.

To switch the language around to make one’s point is one thing, to do it and risk the health of women is criminal. To insist that Americanisms be in the equivalent French in 400 year old Quebec, the US’s neighbor almost another country by referendum, is not the or an example to copy by American jurisprudence, even if “French kissing” leads to other consequences.
