In August, ACNM endorsed the House health reform bill, H.R.3200. This week we're watching closely as the Senate Finance Committee is finalizing its own version of the legislation. These are controversial pieces of legislation. So, tell us what you think! Let’s voice our opinions and share informative resources to fuel the discussion. Is health care reform good for women, midwives, Americans? What do you like about the unfolding legislation? What don’t you like about it?
Here are few resources to get the conversation started:
- Why Reform Matters from the National Women’s Law Center talks about health care reform as it relates to women and families.
- The Kaiser Foundation explains the basics of health reform, tracks public opinion, and provides several interactive resources.
- The Media Consortium features independent journalism on health care reform.
- The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses and the National Association of Community Health Centers have informative health care reform position statements and resources.
