National Women’s Law Center, along with NARAL, American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Center for Reproductive Rights, and Nurse Practitioners for Women’s Health, is organizing a grassroots call-in day to Secretary Price to voice support of no-cost birth control coverage.
Healthy Teen Network is participating in this effort, and we’re joining the call for all interested parties to join the effort.
We’re going to flood the HHS phone lines with calls letting Secretary Price know that we won’t stand for any attacks on the birth control benefit.
What: Birth Control Call-In Day to HHS/Tom Price
When: Monday, March 13, all day
Where: 202-690-7000 or 1-877-696-6775 and hit 5 (five).
Here’s how to take action:
- Call Tom Price on Monday, March 13 at 202-690-7000. If you can’t get through on that line, you can use the main HHS number: 1-877-696-6775 and hit 5 (five).
- Use the following script:
Hi, my name is [insert name] and I am from [State].
I am calling today because I am really concerned that Secretary Price might try to take away insurance coverage of birth control. Having no-cost birth control coverage from the health care law has been so important to me and others across the country. I want to make sure Secretary Price hears from me: please protect this benefit. Our health and economic security depend on it.
