Health Care for Women Resolution reintroduced  

The Health Care for Women Resolution, which would help ensure that the needs of women would be met in national heath care reform, was reintroduced in Congress yesterday by co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Women's Issues Representative Jan Schakowsky and Senator Debbie Stabenow.

In a press release, Senator Stabenow stated, "women must have affordable health care that they can rely on through their life transitions, including starting a family, working part-time or full-time, divorce, or caring for a sick or elderly parent."

There was also a Columbia University report released, entitled "Women's Health and Health Care Reform," which calls for the linkage of family planning and prenatal care to women’s medical care.

Heath care is an extremely important feminist issue.

What next?
