Join Tasini in Defending Abortion Rights

Posted by libhom Saturday, November 14, 2009

flyer defending abortion rights featuring no symbol across a coat hangerJonathon Tasini is running a primary challenge against gun nut Phonycrat Kirsten Gillibrand. In addition to giving us a Real Democrat to vote for in the primary, he also is using his candidacy as a platform to support a lot of important issues, including abortion rights.

As you may know, the House passed a misogynist amendment forbidding abortion coverage in healthcare available from employers and through private insurance companies covered in the healthcare plan. Although Viagra and Cialis are covered, abortion is not covered even though it is a perfectly legitimate medical procedure. This sex discrimination is unacceptable.

Tasini is doing something about it. Please sign his petition to Harry Reid demanding that this hate be stripped out of the final healthcare bill. From the petition text:

The health care legislation passed by the House of Representatives contains an unacceptable and immoral attack on the rights of women. We, the undersigned, call on Democrats in the U.S. Senate to block any attempt to include language that undermines a woman’s right to privacy and a right to health coverage. We also call on Senate Democrats to commit to removing the Stupak-Pitts amendment in any conference committee negotiations over the final health care legislation.

I couldn't agree more.

Please Sign the Petition!

  1. Lew Scannon Says:
  2. The main reason the Democrats can't seem to hold on to any position is they often turn their back on the people who elect them. They did this in 1994 when they passed NAFTA, turning their back on organized labor, which was a big Democratic supporter. This lead to the Republican Revolution of the nineties.If they don't stand up for the reasons they were elected, we may be looking at the same thing in 2010, only this time, the Republicans are a whole lot wackier than last time.
