As the healthcare reform debate heats up following the House passage of the Affordable Health Care Act (HR 3962), several of NCRW Member Centers have launched innovative campaigns to ensure that women's health needs and voices are not left out of any legislative action.

Make no mistake; the Stupak amendment does just that--leaving millions of women worse off than they were before.
