There are simultaneous efforts in both Sacramento and Washington, DC to use more taxpayer funds for abortions. California Senate Bill 245 (Health care coverage: abortion services: cost sharing.) would remove insurance co-pays or any other cost-sharing requirement for all abortion services and would prohibit cost sharing from being imposed on a Medi-Cal beneficiary for those services. Meanwhile, powerful members of Congress are seeking to overturn permanently the 45 year-old bipartisan Hyde Amendment and related policies, resulting in billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to pay for elective abortions in the United States and throughout the world.

Let your lawmakers in Sacramento and in Congress know that women deserve better than abortion. Women need greater access to life-affirming services, not more assistance to have an abortion.
