Next week, the Department of Health and Human Services is wrapping up the public comment period on its new regulations regarding women’s access to contraceptives and other preventive health care services. Send DHHS a short message telling them why all women should have access to affordable birth control and contraceptives NOW, before the public comment period ends!
DHHS needs to hear from you. With some conservative religious voices trying to further expand the existing exemptions for religiously-affiliated organizations, there’s a risk that many women who work in those organizations (such as schools and hospitals) would be denied coverage for necessary preventive health care services.
Send a short message today! Tell them: Birth control is a regular and vital part of women’s preventive health care. It’s expensive, and it should be covered.
