A big thank you to Susan Stone for your continuous efforts to help pass the Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act and for today’s brilliantly-crafted blog post regarding the illogical, way-out-of-left-field anti-pharma agendas of the bill’s opponents.
Here’s the meat of her brilliant blog post for you to digest and guide you to do what’s right–which is to not be swayed by the anti-pharma and anti-Mothers Act blogs, videos, etc. but to read Susan’s blog in entirety and read the bill for yourself. Realize that what Susan is saying makes a lot of sense, and the anti-pharma fanatical claims do not hold a lot of water. Add your name to the growing list of supporters and petition today (if you haven’t done so already) to show your legislators that you support this important bill!
“The detractors are crafty. Notice they don’t offer a link to the actual language of the bill on their websites, because if they did…. readers would quickly discover that The Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act does not promote [or fund] medication….. Nor does [it] mandate screening…..[Their] false arguments are easily refuted by simply reading the bill [which is thankfully what] Legislators and organizations….do…..But in the murky waters of the internet – where those lacking healthcare expertise and appropriate education can operate as covert authorities – such misinformation can feel true….. So for those of you wondering what to believe when confronted by the minority who oppose this bill through video, blog and ideological distortion, here’s what you can do. ….. READ THE BILL Then go back and take a look at these misguided arguments which fail to associate a single allegation with anything that is actually in the bill. …..[Attempting] to deny others access to the lifesaving maternal healthcare offered by this bill speaks to a far more sinister perspective …….. [They] want to deny you access to the full range of choices that can lead to your recovery…….. When we pass The Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act, women in all economic and social strata in every state across the union will be able to find the help they need to return to health. How can one possibly distort this transparent and noble intent?……Truth has always been the most powerful advocate.”
