This spring, almost 10,000 supporters pressured Congress to give Peace Corps Volunteers the same reproductive health coverage as other federal employees. Today, the Senate stood up voted to fix this outdated, callous policy. Tell the House to follow their lead by passing the Peace Corps Equity Act.
Members of Congress require you to provide a gendered title. The Center believes the options provided are limiting, and we are exploring alternatives.
Take Action for the Peace Corps: #Justice4Volunteers
Today the Senate Committee on Appropriations approved funding bills for FY15 that finally allow health care coverage for abortion services for Peace Corps volunteers in cases of life endangerment, rape, and incest - a critical fix that would ensure women in the Peace Corps have the same limited coverage available to federal employees, women receiving health care assistance through Medicaid, and most recently, military servicewomen. I urge you to follow suit by cosponsoring the Peace Corps Equity Act of 2014.
