Women’s Health: The Fight Goes On

The UUCM Affordable Healthcare Taskforce is sponsoring a presentation on current issues in women’s health on Sunday, November 24th, at 12:30 PM in the Peierls Room with speaker Ed Remsen, Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey. 40 years after Roe v Wade we are seeing unprecedented attacks on a woman’s freedom to make choices about her body and her health, and across the country the battle for choice is having to be re-fought.  The 2013 version of that fight also includes the Affordable Care Act, under attack in Congress but a hard-won victory for women’s health. Ed will speak about the fight to ensure choice in today’s political environment and how successful implementation of the ACA is a critical part of the effort to get millions of new women enrolled in health care which will give them choices and benefits previously not accessible.
