From the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR)

Thanks to your emails, calls, visits and actions the House failed to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and millions of Americans will continue to receive health care. If your Representative pledged to vote no: Thank her/him and tell your Representative you support upholding the gains the ACA has made for coverage and care. Find their local office number here, or call the Congressional Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.

Sample Script:
My name is __________I’m a (Catholic sister and/or constituent). I view access to health care as a moral issue. I had serious concerns about the impact the AHCA would have had on access to health care, particularly for the most vulnerable. The bill would have made insurance unaffordable for many Americans struggling to make ends meet, and many would have lost coverage. I believe that the AHCA was not the faithful way forward, and I am grateful that Representative ____ showed the courage to oppose it. Thanks you for listening to the concerns of so many in your district.
