Repro Rights Watch at Health Care Summit

February 25, 2010

toplogos_01Not Under the Bus is closely monitoring today's Bipartisan Health Care Summit today for any means by which the proposed bill works to rollback women’s access to reproductive choice.

When: Thursday, February 25, 2010

Where: The Blair House in Washington, DC

Watch: The meeting will be open to the press and streamed at WhiteHouse.gov/live

The Huffington Post is also watching closely, offering expert analysis from health care experts, bloggers, members of Congress and progressive activists througout the day.

While the President’s proposal is not explicit in its stance on abortion, feminists must be on guard to ensure that the Senate language on abortion, which was formed by the Nelson amendment, is not considered as part of the final health care bill.

Not Under the Bus, in conjunction with Women’s Media Center, stands up for women’s freedom to choose and will not support any health care bill that throws women under the bus in the name of health care reform. Abortion is health care and women should not have to compromise their reproductive rights in the name of safe, fair and comprehensive health care.
