From Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good: Women are 51% of the United States population. Yet there are 14 men and zero women on the working group that is drafting the Senate bill on health care. We demand equal representation for this bill. Women represent more than half the population of the U.S. and deserve to be represented in the working group writing the health care legislation. Will call your Senators today at (202) 224-3121 and demand that the Senate working group on health care add six women and remove seven men so there is equal representation?
