I'm Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney from the great state of New York. When President Obama made health care a right, not a privilege, for all Americans, it was one of the proudest moments of my life. Now women are beginning to get the preventive services--including birth control--that they deserve. If they get sick or pregnant, they won't lose their insurance. And soon, for the first time, no longer will being a woman be a pre-existing medical condition!
Healthy moms mean healthy families. When my Republican colleagues held a hearing about birth control and refused to include a single woman on the first panel as a witness, I asked, "Where are the women?"
Where are the women? The women are here. And we are on our way to re-elect our President. The Democratic women of the House are committed to women's health and to moving America forward.
