Take Action on "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act"

Kathy Wollner
Women's Policy Coordinator, AMSA Gender & Sexuality Committee

Your voice is needed to challenge the House of Representatives' attack on women's health. Tell your Representative to vote NO on the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" (H.R. 3)!

This bill creates new, harmful restrictions on reproductive health care that go far beyond current law by raising taxes on small businesses and the self-employed who wish to purchase a private insurance plan that includes abortion care. This extent of government overreach into the use of private funds is unprecedented. Medical decisions - including those to end a pregnancy - should be discussed between women and their health care providers, not among members of Congress or employees of the IRS.


As medical and premedical students we must speak out in defense of our profession and the rights of our patients across the country. Reproductive health care is just that, health care. It is time for Congress to treat is as such.
