Action Alert from NOW and NARAL

Urge Your Senators to Support the Prevention First Act

S. 20 promotes emergency contraception information and access for rape survivors

Action Needed:

Please urge your senators to sponsor and support S.20, the "Prevention First Act," introduced by Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and 22 co-sponsors (including Hillary Clinton).

This legislative package proposes to improve reproductive health care services provided to girls and women. It expands access to family planning services, ends insurance discrimination against women, provides sexual assault survivors with access to emergency contraception and improves medically accurate awareness about contraception—all with the goal of improving women's health and reducing unintended, unplanned and unwanted pregnancies.

You can read the background material and take action through either NOW or NARAL.
