Senator Heller just voted to strip protections for access to birth control and reproductive health care. Help us fight back!

Today, males politicians like Senator Heller, lead by Vice President Mike Pence, voted in the Senate to undermine women’s access to birth control. When the Senate failed to secure a majority to demolish Title X protections, Vice President Pence rushed over to break the tie and push this outrageous bill through.

Title X is the only federal program dedicated solely to women’s health care. Last year, the Obama administration moved to protect the Title X program, and the more than four million people who rely on it for preventive health care. The Senate voted today to overturn those protections, which could embolden states to prevent Title X patients from going to their health center of choices just because it also provides safe, legal abortion. And the vote was tied 50-50 — until Vice President Pence cast the deciding vote.

Call and tell Senator Heller how many people they hurt, and how unpopular their vote against affordable birth control access and basic health care is!

What to Say (Call Script)

Call Script

Hi, my name is __________, and I live in ___________.

I'm calling today to express my discontent over the Senator’s vote to overturn President Obama's rule guaranteeing patients in the Title X program the right to see their health care provider of choice, including Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health centers.

Title X is a critical, lifesaving program that provides access to affordable cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, birth control, well-woman visits, and more. This care is not optional — it's essential.
More than four million people depend on Title X, including thousands in our state. They are people with very low incomes. They are often people without health insurance. They are real people, with real health needs, who rely on Title X for basic care. [Insert your own story if you have one]

As a voter and a constituent, I expected my member of Congress to vote to protect women’s reproductive health, not take it away.
