Masectomy bill


Recommended Posts

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 just a few 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.

This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON

to your friends and family, and on behalf of all women,
