Stand with Sandra Fluke for birth control access!
We are asking you join us in standing with Sandra Fluke, who is being attacked by Rush Limbaugh because she dared to testify in Congress about birth control access. Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.” This is unacceptable. When Limbaugh attacked Sandra, he also demeaned the 99% of women who use contraceptives in their lifetimes – regardless of religion. We will not be silenced nor shamed.
Stand with Sandra and demand coverage of contraceptives without co-pays or deductibles for most women under the Affordable Care Act’s preventive care package. This coverage would apply to women who work at universities, hospitals, or social service agencies – regardless of any institutional religious affiliation.
The Catholic bishops, the right-wing leadership in Congress, and especially Rush Limbaugh have no right to control women’s access to birth control. We are counting down to see how long it will take to stop the outrageous attacks on contraceptive availability and the concurrent assault on women’s rights and dignity.
Please sign the pledge. It’s time to stand with Sandra and demand access to birth control.
