06:35 am - Tweets for 21 July 2008, and more

I almost typed "tweeks." I wonder what that says about today?

  • 17:37 living well is still the best revenge #
  • 17:59 ponders that the ambient temperature of 93 is lovely mystically but not so great physically. #
  • 18:01 loves the girls who are brave enough to jello wrestle at "Tortuga." #
  • 18:54 wants to go to bed and sleep away the angst, but needs to bake #
  • 21:26 Epic failure, baking nothing. Too tired, overheated, depressed. #

Tried setting my hair with curlers last night. That didn't work out so great. Fortunately, the humidity should have it down before I get to work.

09:30 am - This may get me fired...

...but I did it anyway. It's that important.

Secretary Michael O. Leavitt
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20201

Dear Mr. Secretary:

It has come to my attention that the Department of Health and Human Services may be preparing draft regulations [http://www.rhrealitycheck.org/emailphotos/pdf/HHS-45-CFR.pdf] that would create new obstacles for women seeking contraceptive services.

One of the most troubling aspects of the proposed rules is the overly-broad definition of "abortion." This definition would allow health-care corporations or individuals to classify many common forms of contraception – including the birth control pill, emergency contraception and IUDs – "abortions" and therefore to refuse to provide contraception to women who need it.

As a consequence, these draft regulations could disrupt state laws securing women's access to birth control. They could jeopardize federal programs like Medicaid and Title X that provide family-planning services to millions of women. They could even undermine state laws that ensure survivors of sexual assault and rape receive emergency contraception in hospital emergency rooms. Particularly disturbing about this is that these regulations appear to be based on religious/philosophical belief rather than scientific data.

I strongly urge you to reconsider these regulations before they are released. I am extremely concerned by this proposal's potential to affect millions of women's reproductive health.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely yours,
[my full name]
[my address]
