WTF, insurance companies?

WTF, insurance companies?

Obamacare is in trouble, but this time it's NOT the GOP--it's the insurance companies. According to a new report by our allies at the National Women's Law Center (NWLC) analyzing over 100 insurance plans in 15 states, from California to Florida, many refuse to provide free or low-cost birth control coverage. Other plans refuse to cover maternity care, prescription drugs, and even well-woman visits. All of this violates the Affordable Care Act--it's literally illegal and a blatant attempt to roll back reform.

Why are Google, YouTube, and Hulu censoring these ads?

Why are Google, YouTube, and Hulu censoring these ads?

Why are Google, YouTube, and Hulu censoring UltraViolet's ads about abortion? With a national abortion ban likely to come up for a House vote and 1 in 3 women to have an abortion by age 45, talking openly about abortion is vital for a robust, informed conversation. But these companies' ad representatives rejected our ads, claiming the topic is "non-family safe"--lumping women's health in with porn, sex toys, and hookup sites. We know that pressuring companies like Google can work--Google agreed to remove ads from medical fraud centers that deceive women about abortion after customers spoke out. If we raise our voices again, we can reverse its decision here. Can you sign the petition?

Overturn the conviction against Purvi Patel

Overturn the conviction against Purvi Patel

Tell the Indiana Court of Appeals: "Stop policing women's bodies. Overturn the conviction of Purvi Patel." An Indiana woman, Purvi Patel, was just sentenced to 41 years. Her crime? She suffered a stillbirth and the state suspected--but had no physical evidence--that she tried to induce an abortion.

Congress is about to take food away from hungry children.

Congress is about to take food away from hungry children.

The U.S. Senate voted for a budget that literally takes food away from hungry children. The budgets that have now passed both the House and Senate make deep, painful cuts to the food stamps program--called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP. ONE IN FIVE children in the U.S. depend on SNAP for their meals. These cuts would be devastating and threaten to kick MILLIONS off the program. But they aren't law yet--and we still have a chance to stop them from going into effect if we mount a major fight right now, before these cuts are set in stone in the next few weeks.
