“I Will NOT Be Denied” Health Care

The Women’s Law Project is proud to join the National Women’s Law Center’s  I Will NOT Be Denied™ campaign to educate the public about the benefits of the health care law and what is at risk if it is repealed.  We are pleased to participate in releasing NWLC’s new campaign video which uses intimate portraits of women to highlight the importance of protecting the benefits that women are already receiving from the law and will continue to receive as new benefits roll out through 2014.

While opponents spread misinformation about the Affordable Care Act, the bottom line is that the health care law is already making a meaningful difference in peoples’ lives.

  • Millions more women can now receive preventive services like mammograms, Pap smears, and colonoscopies without a co-pay;
  • It is now illegal for insurance companies to deny children care because of a pre-existing condition.
  • Later this year, millions more women will have access to well-woman exams and birth control without a co-pay, and all health plans will have to include maternity care.

And this is just the beginning. But opponents of the law are fighting to take all these important benefits and common-sense protections away from you.

Take a stand and help us protect women’s health care. Join the campaign by signing our online petition, learn the facts, share the video and tell opponents of affordable care “I Will NOT Be Denied.”™
And join the #NotDenied conversation on Twitter.

    Hi Ladies,

    This is a really important related issue, and I’m looking for as much support as possible… I’m trying to draw attention to the nearly half of fulltime working US women who are ineligible for FMLA, as well as some of the new women’s rights proposed in Obama’s new health reform legislation. Because anyone working for a company with less than 50 employees is exempt from these rights under current laws (that’s right – no FMLA!), half of us won’t receive these benefits, and most of us are unaware of this until it’s too late! No one is talking about it, and we need to get the word out, and demand that our government remove such strict restrictions from legislation with the most specific and direct impact on women. This definitely wouldn’t be happening if we had more women in office. Please don’t wait to think about it – now’s the time.

    I’ve started a petition on change.org with some additional information. If this issue is important to you, PLEASE take the time to sign, and also pass this link along.
