The "Drive-Thru" Mastectomy=Violence Against Women

The following came my way thru one of the lists I am on. This is a very important issue so Please take the few moments it will take to sign this. Even if you are among those that feel signing petitions does no good--sign it anyway…please. This after all, the "drive-thru mastectomy" is, in the end, another form of violence against women; which has got to end--in all forms. Thank you one and all.--Jack

Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book.

If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you are receiving this it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go and vote on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the "drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home hours after surgery against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support. Last year over half the House signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You need not give more than your name and zip code number.
(Open Here For More Info And To Sign Petition)

This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and family. THANKS
