Access to birth control under attack: Call Sen. Grassley now.

Dear Friend,

The Senate could hold a vote as early as this afternoon on a bill that would allow any employer, regardless of religious affiliation, to deny access to no-cost birth control to its female employees.

While this bill, and others like it, was introduced by Tea Party Republicans, some Democrats may cave on this important issue, especially if Republicans attach an anti-birth control provision or amendment onto an unrelated, "must pass" bill. That's why we're asking our members to call both Republican and Democratic senators. Every senator needs to hear from us on this issue.

In the face of immense public pressure from anti-woman extremists like the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, President Obama listened to women's rights advocates and made an historic advancement for women's health with new regulations that require insurance coverage for birth control with no co-pays for women.

But if the Senate passes this anti-contraceptive legislation, President Obama's decision could be overturned. We need you to call Sen. Grassley now.

Call Sen. Grassley: Don't vote for any bill that includes an anti-birth control amendment or provision. Click here for a sample script and the number to call.

This past year brought an unprecedented number of attacks on women's access to reproductive health care, and anti-woman legislators introduced extreme legislation that would have redefined rape, let women die in a hospital rather than have a life-saving abortion, and defunded Planned Parenthood.

But because those bills failed to pass, these radical activists are now trying to exert control over women's bodies by limiting their access to birth control — something that, under the new health care law, women should have access to at no additional cost.

And now, we need as many Senators as possible to stand up and vote against these radical bills. All senators who, like Sen. Grassley, either don't support women's access to birth control or have not expressed their opinion, need to hear that their constituents adamantly oppose any legislation that would limit women's access to this critical health care.

Call Sen. Grassley: Don't vote for any bill that includes an anti-birth control amendment or provision.
