Kill the Bill: NOW


Citing the anti-abortion provisions of an already
woefully-inadequate health bill, the National Organization for Women
(NOW) has said women "will be better off with no bill whatsoever." NOW's president Terry O'Neill told The Raw Story that backdoor deals had rendered the legislation "beyond outrageous."

"Health care is a basic human right, and both the Senate bill
and the House bill presume to take this human right away only from
women, and not from men...So we say, you know
what, kill the health bill entirely."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
