THANK YOU CARDS

FROM NARAL
Thank Governor Codey for protecting the lives and health of NJ women!
Just a few days ago, Governor Codey signed a bill into law requiring hospitals and satellite emergency departments to provide information on emergency contraception (EC) and the EC regimen to sexual-assault survivors.
EC, also known as the morning-after pill, is a high-dosage of birth control pills that can prevent unintended pregnancy if taken within days of unprotected intercourse or sexual assault. Unlike the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which continues to drag its feet on making EC available over-the-counter, New Jersey has taken a leadership role in widening access to it, becoming the seventh state to enact this kind of law.
Please
thank Governor Codey today for supporting compassionate care for survivors of sexual assault in New Jersey.
FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD
We won! Thank you for all the calls and letters you sent to your senators on behalf of America's poor. Your efforts paid off. Last Thursday, the senate voted 52 to 48 in favor of the Smith-Bingaman amendment to remove cuts to Medicaid from the Senate's proposed budget. When it counted most, our senators came together to ensure that America's most needy have access to the heath care they deserve. Take a moment to thank your senators for voting with us.
Many of you also went a step further in helping us during the budget battle and showed outstanding support for the Clinton-Reid amendment, which offered a comprehensive solution to preventing unintended pregnancies. Unfortunately senators voted 47-53 to reject the amendment and missed an opportunity to support prevention programs that allow individuals to make responsible health care decisions.
It is vital that we thank those senators who stood up for women during both of these votes. Take a moment to thank your senators today
