Have you sent an email yet to support the Equality in Abortion Coverage Act ? We are hoping you can be there with us at the hearing tomorrow, but no matter what we need you to take 5 minutes TODAY to send a short email in support!
- Sample Message: “I am a Rhode Island voter writing to say I support the Equality in Abortion Coverage Act (H7442). We protected the right to abortion – and that was the right thing to do. Now we have the chance to get rid of harmful bans on health coverage that take away access to care for state employees and low-income people who use Medicaid to get their care. Please, vote yes – and push to get this bill passed this year.”
