Demand Emergency Contraception Over-the-Counter

Emergency contraceptive pills meet all the requirements set forth by the FDA to be an over-the-counter drug, but currently you can only get them by prescritption only. Since these pills are most effective when taken with 72 hours of unprotected sex, failure of birth control, or sexual assault, requiring a prescription before use makes the pills almost useless. Please take a moment and let the commisioner of the FDA know that a change in these pills status is needed.

Save Sea Turtles and Manatees in Puerto Rico

Mega resorts in Puerto Rico are threatening to develop some of the last stretches of tropical coastline, publicly owned land known as the Northeastern Ecological Corridor (NEC). The NEC is home to sea turtles, manatees and rare tropical birds, but it is not a nature reserve protected by Puerto Rico's government. Please urge the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International, Scotiabank and Banco Bilbao Vizcaya not to build more unnecessary tourist resorts.

Help Prevent Amina Lawal Kumari's Stoning Sentence

An Islamic court in Nigeria rejected an appeal from a single mother, Amina Lawal Kumari, who was sentenced to death by stoning. She was found guilty of adultery last March after giving birth to a child outside of marriage. The courts have decreed that as soon as her child is weaned, the sentence is to be carried out. Please urge Nigerian officials to prevent the courts from killing her.

Help Stop Ocean Floor Strip Mining

Thanks to destructive fishing practices like bottom trawling, we're destroying ocean habitat faster than it can possibly regenerate. Please take a moment to urge your representative to co-sponsor the Ocean Habitat Protection Act. This bi-partisan bill will restrict the use of commercial fishing gear that demolishes vital habitats, and will encourage the use of more sustainable fishing gear.

Demand Insurance Companies Cover Contraception

The Equity in Prescription Insurance and Contraceptive Coverage (EPICC) amendment would establish equitable coverage for contraceptive prescriptions and related medical services. Contraceptive equity means that if a health plan covers prescription drugs and devices, it has to cover contraception also. Right now women pay on average 68% more out of pocket for health care expenses than men. Tell your senators that you think it's time health care became more fair and urge them to support this important piece of legislation.

Help Defeat Corporate Polluters

As part of the Homeland Security Act, the White House and some in Congress are proposing to grant broad new secrecy and immunity protections allowing corporations to conceal damaging information from the public and the courts, and avoid accountability for their actions. It would have a devastating effect on law enforcement, the regulatory process, and public safety. Please urge your representatives to reject this secrecy and immunity proposal.

Urge Congress to End Misuse of Vital Antibiotics in Factory Farms

Please take a moment and go urge Congress to protect human health by ending misuse of vital antibiotics in factory farms.

Heifer International

If you've been looking for a good charity to spend money at, look no further than Heifer International. Heifer supplies poor locations around the world with a gift animal - goat, llama, water buffalo, rabbit, etc. The people of the region are taught how to care for the animal. The animal supplies the people with food, milk, eggs, items like fur that can be sold, and more. The people are then required to give some of the offspring to another family or group of people in need. They in turn do the same. By teaching people how to become self-reliant and having them help others, Heifer has assisted millions of people in become healthy, happy individuals that can stand on their own two feet. I gave the gift of ducks today. If you can spare a few dollars, please go and donate. It's a wonderful program and can use all the help it can get.

Big Brother is Watching You (Or At Least is Trying To)

I found another petition that just may interest you. It's to oppose the SSSCA (government policeware on your PC) Petition. The proposed "Security Systems Standards and Certification Act" (SSSCA) would force all new consumer electronics devices and personal computers to have government-mandated "policeware" built-in. Can anyone say Big Brother? Anyway, go take a second and sign.

Say Thank You to Colin Powell

Some of you may have seen the story about Colin Powell urging people who have sex to use condoms. Of course, he's getting a lot of heat for this stance. If you would like to, go tell Colin Powell thank you for taking a stand for responsible, comprehensive AIDS prevention. I know that abstinence is the only way to be totally safe, but to preach it only and stick your head in the sand and ignore that lots of people are having sex seems silly. Btw, this website is great to let those in power know of your thoughts. If you are of the feminist persuasion, that is. :-)

Good Deed For the Day

I thought I would share with everyone the charity links that I click every day. There is The Hunger Site, which also has links on the page to The Breast Cancer Site and to The Rainforest Site. By clicking this link you can help the hungry, help poor women get breast exams, and help save the rainforest. The next site is The Ecology Fund. This site allows you to contribute to seven different projects including save the South American rain forest, protect endangered Mexican Wildlife, and protect natural reserves in Scotland. Next is a group of sites: Care 2's Race for the Rainforest, Care 2's Race for the Big Cats, Care 2's Race for the Panda, and Care 2's End Breast Cancer. It only takes a minute or two to make these clicks, so try adding them to your daily stops.
