This past year, we have been witnessing the most aggressive legislative attacks on women’s health and rights in a generation.
The 2010 elections dramatically changed the U.S. Congress and state legislatures nationwide, leading to a wave of efforts to restrict access to lifesaving health care, including breast exams, cancer screenings, and birth control. Instead of focusing on jobs and the economy, anti-women’s health leaders in Congress and the states have been spending their time introducing and passing bills restricting women’s access to health care. In fact, lawmakers have introduced more than 1,000 reproductive health bills in legislatures across the country, the majority of which seek to undermine women's health.
That’s why we’ve launched Women are Watching.
Women are Watching is Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s 2012 campaign to educate women across the country about the unprecedented attacks on women’s health and where candidates stand on pivotal health care issues, empower women to hold anti-women’s health candidates of either party accountable, and work to elect pro-women’s health candidates up and down the ballot.
In all branches of government, the future of women’s health hangs in the balance. In 2012, women have the power to choose which candidates will ultimately determine whether our health will be supported and our health care remains accessible.
Women are watching, educating their friends, sharing, taking action, and WE WILL BE VOTING.
