Dear ,

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter. You will be able to edit your name, address, etc. in the next step.

This letter supports an action by NARAL, opposing Rep. Sensenbrenner's attempt to overturn the Obama administration's birth control policy. His bill would allow employers to deny coverage for birth control based on the employer's personal beliefs.

The Obama administration implemented a policy to assure that women have access to necessary contraception, and took care to accommodate religious institutions.

Organizations such as churches, mosques, and synagogues are entirely exempt from the requirement. Religiously-affiliated organizations that oppose birth control -- like universities and hospitals -- may opt out of the requirement, allowing their insurance plan to cover the benefit for women directly. 

Rep. Sensenbrenner’s bill would allow ANY employer to ignore the requirement without penalty. That means that an employer's personal beliefs could dictate what health care coverage his/her employee receives, and an employer's beliefs would supersede the employee's health care decision.

People should make their own decisions about their health care, not their employers. Please oppose H.R. 6097.

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the subject or the letter itself in the next step, if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Director
