The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act... commonly called "ObamaCare"... is a law that has held a lot of promise for women. It has the potential of really helping many of us and many of our "sisters" get the care we have needed.
So why have the opponents of the law been fighting to take away these important benefits and common-sense protections? There are many, many reasons why... much too many to recite in this post.
This is a video from the National Women's Law Center, and it's campaign to tell opponents of affordable women's health care that "I Will NOT Be Denied."
It may be too late for some, or even many of us. The presentation of the case against Healthcare Equality for All just finished its third of three days before the Supreme Court a few days ago... on Wednesday, March 28, 2012. I fear Healthcare Equality will be cut to shreds.
I look at the national news, and the local news here in Texas... and see so many state legislatures simply pick apart at its roots many of the protections we as women have had as far as our own personal health care is concerned.
I just found this video last night. It says what I feel in so incredibly many ways better than I ever could. If the Affordable Care Act "goes down"... please... in honor of all of our female friends and family, and all our sisters in need... please remember this on Election Day... November 6, 2012.
