HR 358 aka the "Protect Life Act"

And the madness concerning women's reproductive rights continues.  While Mississippi is leaving the debate of when life begins to their general pubic [initiative 26], which will have immediate determental effects including outlawing some types of birth control, the US House of Reps is also busy at work attempting to control my body and my choices.  Don't they have better things to do with their time and our money?!!!! 

I'm off to enjoy the first days of sukkot.  Hopefully the world wont go to complete hell in a hand basket while I'm gone.

Re-posting an RCRC action alert, the original can be found here:

STOP this Dangerous & Misleading Bill!
Contact Your Representative Now!

Dear RCRC Advocate:
Congress is not listening to you! Instead of creating new jobs and helping our economy grow, they are attacking women's health in unprecedented ways!
HR 358 aka the "Protect Life Act" will be up for a vote on the House floor this week and you need to tell your Representative that you, as a person of faith, oppose this dangerous bill. It would ban abortion coverage in ALL insurance plans on the upcoming state exchanges, even if a woman uses her own private funds to pay for her insurance.
The "Protect Life Act" would also create a loophole in the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) that would allow hospitals to deny pregnant women stabilizing and life-saving treatments. It also expands already broad conscience protections for providers and entities who do not want to provide abortion services, without any regard for patient safety and protection or for those providers and entities who do want to provide abortion services.
HR 358 violates the hallowed promise of our nation to respect diverse religious views, so contact your Representative NOW and tell them to oppose this far-reaching and harmful bill!
Peace and blessings,
