Bush's parting gift

Recommended Posts

Thank you for contacting the Bush administration and demanding

that it stop its latest attack on women's health. You've joined

more than 35,000 Planned Parenthood supporters who have already

spoken out on this dangerous regulation. Help us get to 50,000

by telling your friends to join the growing outcry.


Just moments ago, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Patty Murray

joined the uproar over the proposed rule. Sen. Clinton said,

"In the final days of his administration, the president is again

putting ideology first and attempting to roll back health care

protections for women and families. This HHS rule will threaten

patients' rights, stand in the way of health care professionals,

and restrict access to critical health care services for those

who need them most. Senator Murray and I are standing up once

again to the administration against this rule and will continue

to fight for women's reproductive rights."

It's so important to have prominent allies like Sen. Clinton and

Sen. Murray speaking out, but we also need to continue to raise

the voices of citizens everywhere. That's where you come in.

You've already spoken out, and now we need you to tell your

friends and family to join you. Today is our last chance.


The new rule is Bush's parting gift to the anti-choice

extremists who have supported him for the last eight years. The

rule could allow health care organizations that receive federal

funding to redefine abortion to include the most common forms of

birth control -- and then refuse to provide these basic

services. For any health provider to intentionally withhold

information about widely embraced health care options from a

patient is absolutely unconscionable under any circumstances.

The federal government has no business funding providers who do

not abide by this most fundamental standard of care.

Thank you so much for your help today on behalf of the millions

of women, men, and teens served by more than 880 Planned

Parenthood affiliate health centers all across the country.


Cecile Richards, President

Planned Parenthood Federation of America
