Need Your Help WP Friends!

I have started an online petition to help end domestic violence as a pre-existing condition.

For every signature received one penny will be donated to a local women’s shelter.

It’s time to stand up and have our voices heard.

Start today.

Sign today.

—————————————————————————

Idaho, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wyoming and the District of Columbia do not have laws that specifically bar insurance companies from using domestic violence as a pre-existing condition to deny health coverage.
An informal survey by the House Judiciary Committee in 1994 found that half of the 16 largest insurers in the country considered domestic violence in deciding whether to approve health coverage. The Pennsylvania insurance Department reported a year or so later that nearly one out of four insurance companies factored in domestic violence when deciding whether to issue or renew policies.
It is time to end this.
It is time to show Congress and insurance companies that we will no longer let this policy stand.
We believe in equality.
Please sign this petition to make your voice heard.

    Done … that has to be the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in a very long time *sigh*

    • I’ve been doing extensive research and as soon as my petition has reach a sizable amount of signatures, each representative from those states and the District of Columbia will be hearing from me…again.
