Anne -- Last week, just like you, I finally got to see the health care repeal bill that Senate Republicans have been working on in secret. I can't say I'm surprised that 13 Republican men came up with a bill that would be disastrous for millions of American women. Now, they're rushing their bill to a vote -- and we must stop it from passing. Can you pitch in $3 or whatever you can to stand with my Democratic colleagues and all the Democrats across the country who are fighting back against health care repeal? my.democrats.org/June-Deadline-AB The health care options that are available to women should be equal to what's available to men. That means basic health care needs -- like preventive care, cancer screenings, maternity care, and, yes, the constitutionally-protected right to access abortion services -- should be covered. That won't happen if the GOP's health care repeal becomes law: my.democrats.org/June-Deadline-AB If Republicans get their way, insurers would no longer be required to cover essential health benefits like maternity care. The GOP's draconian cuts to Medicaid would disproportionately affect women. Medicaid funding pays for nearly one-half of births nationwide, and in my state of New Hampshire, 62 percent of Medicaid recipients are women. And it wouldn't be a Republican health care bill if it didn't defund Planned Parenthood -- which doesn't only affect women's reproductive health choices, Anne. Millions of women across the country get their primary and preventive care from Planned Parenthood. In some communities, Planned Parenthood is the only women's health care provider available. Defunding it would cut off access to routine checkups, mammograms, and cancer screenings for hundreds of thousands of American women. When it comes right down to it, there's only one way to look at the GOP's health care repeal: they're playing political games with every woman in this country's right to make her own health care decisions. We have to fight back with everything we've got.

Anne --

Last week, just like you, I finally got to see the health care repeal bill that Senate Republicans have been working on in secret.

I can't say I'm surprised that 13 Republican men came up with a bill that would be disastrous for millions of American women.

Now, they're rushing their bill to a vote -- and we must stop it from passing. Can you pitch in $3 or whatever you can to stand with my Democratic colleagues and all the Democrats across the country who are fighting back against health care repeal?

The health care options that are available to women should be equal to what's available to men. That means basic health care needs -- like preventive care, cancer screenings, maternity care, and, yes, the constitutionally-protected right to access abortion services -- should be covered.

That won't happen if the GOP's health care repeal becomes law.

If Republicans get their way, insurers would no longer be required to cover essential health benefits like maternity care.

The GOP's draconian cuts to Medicaid would disproportionately affect women. Medicaid funding pays for nearly one-half of births nationwide, and in my state of New Hampshire, 62 percent of Medicaid recipients are women.

And it wouldn't be a Republican health care bill if it didn't defund Planned Parenthood -- which doesn't only affect women's reproductive health choices, Anne. Millions of women across the country get their primary and preventive care from Planned Parenthood. In some communities, Planned Parenthood is the only women's health care provider available. Defunding it would cut off access to routine checkups, mammograms, and cancer screenings for hundreds of thousands of American women.

When it comes right down to it, there's only one way to look at the GOP's health care repeal: they're playing political games with every woman in this country's right to make her own health care decisions. We have to fight back with everything we've got.
