5 Minute Action for Friday, 3/24: Must Do This Morning – Women, Say No to Losing Essential Healthcare Services

President Donald Trump met with the arch-conservative House Freedom Caucus at the White House Thursday to try to hammer out a deal on the Obamacare repeal. A major question in the final negotiations? Whether or not maternity care and mammograms should be considered “essential” treatments covered by all health insurance policies under the Republican proposal.

The White House happily snapped a photo of the gathering that will go a long way toward deciding the future of women’s health in America. Here’s the photo from Pence’s twitter post: C7n2dJAX0AEoeXX.jpg

Uh oh. Wait, what year is this? 2017, and a room full of white men are deciding whether women should get these essentials for their healthcare.

Let’s not also forget that this same group is aiming to defund Planned Parenthood, which provides essential healthcare and family planning services to millions of women.

TODAY’s 5 Minute Action:

Step 1: Call one of these undecided GOP reps where you have property, family or another strong connection and urge them to vote ‘NO’. Because some of these reps may vote NO because the new bill doesn’t cut enough (OMG), don’t express why you want them to vote NO. Use the script below.

BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
