Sounding an alarm to protect the ACA - Affordable Care Act

The provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will fix much that is wrong with health care in the US today - it will provide:
no preconditions, no caps, no loss of coverage if you get sick, ability to keep your college-age child on your policy, and so on.

On Mar 1, 2012, HERVOTES held a press conference to sound an alarm – there have been too many attacks on women’s rights in the past year for us to remain silent.

"We’re seeing reproductive rights under attack, from an unprecedented number of bills in the last legislative session directly attacking abortion access to the challenging of birth control coverage by religious employers under the Affordable Care Act. We’re seeing Medicaid and Medicare challenged as funding for public education is slashed and public sector jobs are cut. Voter ID laws only serve to further exacerbate all of the attacks to health, education, and employment, as those most affected by these decisions are the very people being disenfranchised – low income people, people of color, women, and youth."
