Birth control = abortion?

From Air America Radio:
It's a challenging time to be pro-choice. From McCain's virulently anti-choice VP pick, Sarah Palin, to the Bush administration's new rule that would limit the rights of patients to receive accurate reproductive health information, we are facing the fight of our lives. Planned Parenthood needs your help.

The Bush administration's new rule could allow individual health care providers to redefine abortion to include the most common forms of birth control—and then refuse to provide them. A woman's ability to manage her own health care is at risk of being compromised by politics and ideology. We have until September 25 to voice our opposition. Please, click here to help Planned Parenthood fight back.

Our actions in the next eight weeks have never been more critical. If this rule goes into effect we are facing a catastrophe for women's health and rights—which can only be addressed by electing a presidential ticket, Obama/Biden, that stands for women's rights. It's time to get to work—and hard..

This new rule is just more of the Bush administration's bad medicine. Help us fight back.
