Attention Women of all Ages: Your Voices are Urgently Needed!

AMANA AILE SHEBAR

Years ago I was the Title X Training manager for the state of New Mexico and had many opportunities to work with Planned Parenthood and its affiliates  nationwide.  The services that Title X provides to women of childbearing age are vast and vital, and are efficiently and compassionately offered to clients across all walks of life: women with insurance (who could be denied coverage even under threat of death) and women on entitlement programs such as Medicaid.  Efforts to totally defund these Title X programs and to deny coverage via insurance claims will destroy mainstream, dependable sources of health care like Planned Parenthood.  These efforts are gaining momentum every day among Republican and Blue Dog legislators and your voice is urgently needed!

We are facing the possibility of tremendous and unimaginable setbacks in women’s health care with several bills being debated in Congress now.  We must speak out or as a nation, we will soon lose our precious democratic values: that each person is promised life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Please speak out through Planned Parenthood or by going to NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Your voices can help to stop the undermining of women’s hard fought rights in determining the number and the spacing of their offspring, and to assist all women of childbearing age in receiving the reproductive health care services they need.

Women are under siege in this current congressional climate, and in order to understand more about the situation with the Republican anti-women agenda and the proposed bills, this interview (click below), is worth viewing.

If you haven’t already done so, sign on to the letters and petitions that are being delivered to Congress on behalf of all women in America.

Your voices have never been so urgently needed, in all the decades since Roe vs. Wade.  Will you add your voice?

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Reproductive health is a crucial part of general health and a central feature of human development. Among women of reproductive age (15-49 years), the burden of reproductive ill-health is far greater than the disease burden from tuberculosis, respiratory infections, motor vehicle injuries, homicide and violence. Women run the risks of pregnancy, childbirth and unsafe abortion, take most of the responsibility for fertility regulation and are socially and biologically more vulnerable to reproductive tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases. Title X and the programs that go with it should not go down!
