Tell President Obama: Don't cave on birth control!

Dear Friend,

The White House signaled that President Obama may be dangerously close to caving to anti-woman activists and blocking access to birth control for millions of women.1

President Obama has already approved guidelines that would give women access to no-cost birth control — and has even campaigned on his decision to implement them.

But now, after pressure from anti-woman forces, the president is poised to reverse his earlier decision and create a loophole that would restrict access to no-cost birth control for millions of women.

Although you've already signed a petition to President Obama asking him to protect access to no-cost birth control, we can't stop pushing him to make the right decision. The next step is to call the White House and demand that he take a stand for women's health.

Call President Obama and tell him to take a stand against extreme anti-woman activists and ensure that virtually all women have access to no-cost birth control. Click here for a sample script and the number to call.

If President Obama caves to the demands of the radical anti-contraception activists, certain employers like religiously affiliated universities and hospitals will be allowed to prevent their female students and employees from having access to the same health care as every other woman in America.

The Department of Health and Human Services and the medical community agree that providing no-cost birth control is an essential part of preventive health care for women. And Kathleen Sebelius, the director of HHS, said that providing birth control at no cost to women should be like "covering flu shots."2

President Obama needs to hear that women's access to critically important health care shouldn't be determined by who they work for.

The anti-woman lobby is small but incredibly powerful. We know that President Obama has had private meetings with influential leaders from U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops who have been publicly pressuring him to restrict access to birth control. There is already a religious exemption that covers churches and other places of worship from offering birth control as part of health insurance. This new push to radically broaden that exemption is nothing more than a thinly veiled attack on contraception.

Now, President Obama needs to hear from Americans that millions of women use birth control and depend on it to keep them healthy. He should listen to the medical community and women in the U.S., not the extreme anti-woman forces lobbying him behind closed doors.

Thank you for speaking out to protect access to birth control.
