On Sept. 30, protections for America’s coasts will expire, allowing oil
companies to begin drilling for oil off beaches that have been
protected for generations. To keep our protected coasts free of oil
rigs and oil spills, Congress must act to extend the ban on new
offshore oil drilling.Please consider taking action on this important topic.

Bush Hating on Women’s Rights Again, Petition.

Hillary Clinton on Bush’s Outrageous Attempt to Undermine Women’s Rights

Posted by Hillary Clinton, Huffington Post at 10:33 AM on July 27, 2008.

New rules pose a serious threat to birth-control providers and uninsured and low-income Americans seeking care.

The Bush administration is up to its old tricks again, quietly putting ideology before science and women’s health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is poised to put in place new barriers to accessing common forms of contraception like birth control pills, emergency contraception and IUDs by labeling them "abortion." These proposed regulations set to be released next week will allow healthcare providers to refuse to provide contraception to women who need it. We can’t let them get away with this underhanded move to undermine women’s health and that’s why I am sounding the alarm.

These rules pose a serious threat to providers and uninsured and low-income Americans seeking care. They could prevent providers of federally-funded family planning services, like Medicaid and Title X, from guaranteeing their patients access to the full range of comprehensive family planning services. They’ll also build significant barriers to counseling, education, contraception and preventive health services for those who need it most: low-income and uninsured women and men.

The regulations could even invalidate state laws that currently ensure access to contraception for many Americans. In fact, they describe New York and California’s laws requiring prescription drug insurance plans to provide coverage for contraceptives as part of "the problem." These rules would even interfere with New York State law that ensures survivors of sexual assault and rape receive emergency contraception in hospital emergency rooms.

We’ve seen this kind of ideologically driven move from the Bush administration before. Senator Patty Murray and I went toe to toe with the Bush administration to demand a decision on Plan B by the FDA. We won that fight and we need to win this one too.

When I learned about these proposed rules, I immediately joined with Senator Murray to call on the Bush administration to stop these dangerous plans. I am joining with New York family planning and healthcare advocates to spread the word. Now is the time to raise our voices. I will continue to press HHS and I hope you will join me. I have posted information on how to get involved here.

Get FISA Right

Wednesday, the Senate passed the so-called "compromise" FISA bill and gave retroactive immunity to the telecommunications companies that illegally gave the Bush administration private data without warrants. Obama voted for this bill. Hold the Senate accountable for their votes.

Get FISA Right

Tell Congress to RESIST calls for drilling!

stupidest. idea. ever.

Anti-environmentalists in Congress are adding amendments to every bill they can get their hands on, calling for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, many offshore areas, and other sensitive regions—even to bills that aren’t remotely related to energy!

Drilling is NOT the answer to our energy crisis. Tell your members of Congress that we must pursue clean, renewable energy alternatives. Drilling in the Arctic and off our beaches will only perpetuate our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and slow progress towards a clean energy future.

I’ve heard some people on NPR saying that drilling for oil on our coasts will not make them dirty. These people have not been to Galvaston, Texas. People from the Texas Gulf region now come to our gulf coasts because theirs are covered with little oil balls all over the sand. no thanks. TX_042.jpg
