Thank President Obama for protecting access to no-cost birth control.

Dear Friend,

On Friday, President Obama did the right thing for women by rejecting the demands of anti-woman activists to limit access to no-cost birth control.

Extremists who literally oppose any woman having access to contraceptives had lobbied President Obama hard to overturn new health insurance regulations and block access to birth control for millions of women.

If President Obama had caved to the demands of these radical activists, certain employers like religiously affiliated universities and hospitals would have been allowed to prevent their female employees and students from having access to the same health care as every other woman in America.

Fortunately, President Obama sided with the medical community and women's health advocates over these anti-woman extremists.

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."1

However, before CREDO and other organizations like Planned Parenthood began petitioning President Obama, the New York Times reported that the president was dangerously close to caving to the demands of the anti-woman lobby by adding a giant loophole that would keep a large number of women from being able to access no-cost birth control.2

CREDO members like you sent over 160,000 petitions and made over 3,000 calls to the White House asking President Obama not to cave.

In the end, President Obama listened to our call to protect women's health. But that doesn't mean our work is done.

The anti-woman extremists who are unhappy with President Obama for taking this stand will surely let him know. So let's make sure he hears from those of us who support him standing strong and protecting access to contraception.

Thank President Obama for doing the right thing for women's health and protecting access to no-cost birth control.
