ACTION ALERT - Obamacare Repeal and Replacement

Tell your lawmakers:

• Taxpayer's money must not be used to purchase insurance plans that cover abortion.

• Insurers must not be mandated to cover abortion and there must be conscience protections for health care providers.

• They should retain employer paid health insurance and keep it fully untaxed so that Americans who have employer-based insurance have continued access to quality healthcare, rather than rationed more each.
