Pro-Choice Legislation for Once

I was very pleased to learn that U.S. Senators Patty Murray (D-WA), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), and Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) introduced the “21st Century Women’s Health Act” today! It is a bill intended to protect and expand access to reproductive health care.

Please contact your Senators and urge them to support this bill. It might not hurt to do the same with your Representative in the House. Hopefully, with enough public pressure, this bill might actually get passed!

BREAKING: Obama Starts Having The Grownup Conversation About Guns That The NRA Doesn’t Want To Have.

It’s so good to see the president taking real action to strengthen gun control, reduce violence, and protect the rights of all Americans to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. I especially appreciate that he acknowledged people with mental illness are more likely to be victims of violence than perpetrators. It’s important for us to have powerful advocates. One of his measures is to improve access to mental health services, something people with mental illness desperately need.

But for the necessary changes to take place, everyone needs to act.

Please contact your senators and representative and urge them to support the changes President Obama has called for.
