If you haven’t done it already, let me invite–nay, harangue–you to click over to Planned Parenthood and sign the petition against the Stupak Amendment and its clones. (How much do I love that the guy’s name sounds like an insult? “Whatta stupak amendment.” “Don’t be such a stupak.”)
Thus far, PP has collected over 100,000 signatures, but today, Orrin Hatch (R-Utah0 and Ben Nelson (D-NE) (<–UGH) will introduce a Stupak-like amendment to the health care reform bill currently before the Senate. Such an amendment is going to severely curtail women’s right to legal abortion (yep, still legal!), but also endanger their reproductive health in general by limiting the full range of services needed.
Go sign, at least, but also consider calling your Senators, spreading the word through social networking sites, talking it up with your family and friends, or donating to PP or other worthy causes.
I also recommend this primer from PP, if you’re finding all this health care bidness a bit messy and overwhelming.
Hop to it!
