Friend,

I wanted to make sure you saw this important action alert on health care and contraception from Jessica Jones on Wednesday. We need you to speak out.  As local League president and an influential voice in  your community, you have a unique opportunity to speak responsibly on this issue.

The debate across the country regarding health care and contraception challenges the League’s positions and threatens access to preventive care for millions of Americans. Please take a moment to speak out by tailoring this letter-to-the-editor to your community, signing your name and title, and submitting it to your local paper(s).

Together we can help influence this debate and make a difference.

Take Action

Friend,

As a local League leader and influential voice in your community, you have a unique opportunity to speak out on important issues. That is why I’m writing you today with an opportunity to share the League’s point of view on a critical national issue.

There is a great debate happening in Congress and across the country regarding health care and contraception. A few weeks ago, the US Senate narrowly defeated an amendment that would have allowed insurers and employers to deny coverage based on “religious or moral objections.”

Since 1992, when League members studied health care policy, we have worked to ensure access to quality health care for all. The current debate challenges the League’s position and threatens access to preventive care for millions of Americans.

We need you to speak out in your community. Please download our template letter to the editor that can be customized and shared with your local newspaper editor. Please read it, tailor it to your community if you’d like, and submit it using your League title. Your voice can make a difference in providing access to preventive services and stop discrimination based on gender.

Our grassroots is strong because of the leadership that you provide and I cannot thank you enough for all that you do. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions regarding this action or any additional items.
