Prevention First Act

Alerting you to Senate Bill S.21 authored by Sen. Harry Reid (NV), the Prevention First Act. Read at GovTrack. Some of the titles of this bill:
-- At-Risk Communities Teen Pregnancy Prevention Act of 2009
-- Compassionate Assistance for Rape Emergencies Act of 2009
-- Emergency Contraception Education Act of 2009
-- Equity in Prescription Insurance and Contraceptive Coverage Act of 2007
-- Prevention Through Affordable Access Act
-- Responsible Education About Life Act of 2009
-- Title X Family Planning Services Act of 2009
-- Truth in Contraception Act of 2009
-- Unintended Pregnancy Reduction Act of 2009
It was read and referred to committee where it is currently. Call your representatives to defeat this bill. Some people were decrying the mobilization against FOCA because it distracted from the sneaky stuff being pushed here and there. Maybe so. But the mobilization did one thing, to raise awareness to the extent of the pro-death agenda that this new administration is promoting under the guise of compassion.

UPDATE 11:38 AM
Committee Members of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions:

Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA), Chair
Sen. Michael Enzi (R-WY)
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM)
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Amazing, isn't it, how these people seem to really believe that loosening restrictions on abortion will make them less commonplace?
