ACTION ALERT: Call your Senators in Support of Healthcare Access
by WREN Staff on Jun 27, 2017
Your United States Senators need to hear from you today.
The Senate healthcare bill, known as the “Better Care Reconciliation Act,” is a threat to the health of South Carolinians. It would hurt women, children, and families by massively cutting health coverage and benefits, including:
- Drastically cutting Medicaid, which covers 1.1 million South Carolinians. Medicaid pays for 60% of births in our state and currently covers 640,000 children.
- Endangering coverage of maternity care and other essential health benefits, such as mental health and substance abuse treatment.
- Eliminating funding to Planned Parenthood for any service.
These are only a few examples of how this bill would hurt women, children, and families in our state.
Senate leadership wants to bring this to a vote before the July 4 recess. Time is of the essence. Please call your Senators today to tell them that you oppose health care legislation that harms women, children, and families in your community.
