Where is your birth certificate?

A lot of people can't answer that question. But if you happen to
be a woman on Medicaid, answering "no" now means that you may
not be able to get birth control, have your yearly ob/gyn visit,
or be screened for breast cancer.

Under rules imposed by the Bush administration, millions of
Americans could face significant delays or lose health coverage
altogether because they simply do not have access to their birth
certificate, passport, or similar documents now required.

This week the agency that oversees Medicaid, the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is accepting comments from
the public on these rules.

Act now >>

Let them know that all women -- regardless of income -- should
have easy access to health care.
