Stop the Shrub from Limiting Women's Options

We have until September 25 to raise an outcry.

Shrub is pushing a new rule "from the Department of Health and Human Services that would govern family planning. It would require that any health care entity that receives federal financing — whether it’s a physician in private practice, a hospital or a state government — certify in writing that none of its employees are required to assist in any way with medical services they find objectionable". What this does, in effect, is allow each individual who works at such agencies to decide what options to offer to women who need help. This is crazy, but typical of rules that spew from a Bush.

Let's stop him from messing up things any worse than he already has.
