  • Women's Health
    The isssue of women's health, contraception, reproductive choice are very important and we serve no good purpose by removing these -it is not a real solution to anything merely pandering to an extemist religous minority.

  • Mr. President, Please help
    People are dying because our laws allow someone to abuse drugs/ alcohol without an mandatory rehab intervention. I want to see a law passed that will require a person who has 3 documented hospital/ jail visits related to alcohol and or drug abuse to complete a 28 day rehab program. My Mother just passed away after being in ICU 5 times, where alcohol abuse was brought to their attention, since Oct 2011, I was told by a case manager that my Mom had the right to drink her self to death! Well she did just that, and I pleaded and pleaded with these hospitals to help her but each time she was able to walk out. Doctors said that she was of sound mind and was able to make her own decisions. I agree, but you cant be of sound mind drinking your self to death. She died 3/13/2012.

  • Legalize Medical Marijuana in Massachusetts
    Currently people with conditions such and M.S., Cancer, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, depression, eating disorders, and anxiety are forced to take percription medication with far more side effects then marijuana. Not to mention the addiction rate. If more people were precribed medical marijuana it would take a large amount of the percription street drugs out of the picture.

  • Reasonable Health Care costs
    Health Care should not cost someone more than a reasonable amount of thier rake home income. HUD says housing should cost 30% of your income, well we need something for health care. People should not wind up homeless to not die.

  • Vote Against House Bill 119
    Regarding House Bill 119 and how it will screw up Florida's Health Care System. If you are a LMT, P.T. D.O., D.C. and own/or work in a private medical facility. You will be affected directly sooner rather than later. The powers that be are trying to keep this under the radar as long as they can just for there own benefit not the benefit of the people. Just another freedom of choice that these non medical affiliates are trying to get rid of for there own financial gain. Research this for yourself and get involved now.

  • Insurance Coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorders
    Currently many treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorders are denied or not covered by insurance companies. Passing SB 74 would allow children in Alaska who experience autism to receive the treatments they so desperately need to be healthy and fulfill their highest potential. SB 74 has been passed by the Alaska Senate, but it has been stalled in the Alaska House for the past three years. We have 34 days left in this legislative session and SB74 needs your help!

    This "anit-abortion" legislature allows doctors to withhold medical information and diagnosis pertaining to the health of fetus and mother in any instance where the doctor feels the mother may chose abortion. This includes etopic pregnancy, and any other that could cause the death of the mother, etc.

  • Save Alabama's Mental Health System
    Because of a shortfall in the General Fund, Alabama's Department of Mental Health will have to close the state hospitals caring for patients committed with severe mental illness and move the patients to local communities by September 30. Without enough time and money to prepare local facilities, we risk tragic consequences-- mainly death by suicide but also increases in crime and potentially homicide. We must call on our legislators to fully fund the DMH for our own safety and that of the patients.

  • Throw out the Florida PIP Bill!
    Govenor Rick Scott has led the battle to get rid of alternative healthcare availability to people who have been in a car accident. He has given absolute power to the car insurance companies to limit your care telling you where to get it, from whom and what care you will be getting. $10,000 in Florida is no more he cut your benefits down to $2500 BUT you will still pay your full premiums for insurance! Sound unconstitutional? I think so...

  • Orthomolecular Treatment Must Be Required in Treatment of Mental Disorders/Illnesses
    By signing this petition, you can bring some sanity to Washington State. Instead of paying tens of millions of dollars on psychiatric treatment that doesn't work, we could be putting that money into our schools or other important areas. You will also be forcing the government to provide the kind of mental health care that cures people instead of simply attempting to suppress their symptoms with man-made drugs.
