    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Create a specific Federal agency to help people fight medical and dental Insurance companies denial of payments. This petition is to request the Federal government to create an agency for the purpose of protecting the consumer from medical and dental insurance denials of payments to providers. Currently, each state has a department of Insurance that is charged with compliance of the Insurance laws, but more often then not they side with the insurance companies reason for denial. The consumer has no recourse but to try and resolve the denial through court. We need a consumer protection agency to be an advocate for unscrupulous medical and dental companies that find a way to deny payment of covered services.

  • Tell Rick Santorum prenatal testing isn't a gateway to abortion; it's basic healthcare for women!
    What started with the Susan G. Komen Foundation's attack on Planned Parenthood has only escalated. Now Rick Santorum says the purpose of prenatal testing is to increase abortions. It's outrageous! "One of the mandates [of health care reform] is they require free prenatal testing in every insurance policy in America. Why? Because it saves money in health care. Why? Because free pre-natal testing ends up in more abortions and therefore less care that has to be done, because we cull the ranks of the disabled in our society." --Rick Santorum, February 18, 2012 Tell Rick Santorum prenatal testing isn't a gateway to abortion. It is basic health care for women! Prenatal testing is used in many ways. It determines the mother's blood type and Rh factor, whether she has anemia, whether she has infections such as toxoplasmosis, hepatitis B, syphilis, chlamydia, and HIV, and whether she is immune to rubella (German measles) and chicken pox. While it is true that in a tiny minority of cases, prenatal testing finds conditions that may lead to a choice to terminate a pregnancy, it is much more frequently true that the information gleaned from prenatal testing uncovers conditions that can be, and need to be, treated promptly. Prenatal testing can make profound improvements in the health and lives of pregnant women and the fetuses they are carrying!

  • Ban HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP in our food products.
    HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP (HFCS) has been around for about thirty-five years. I believe that we are beginning to see the ill effects of consuming this product. Our bodies cannot break down HFCS. Diabetes is at record numbers and continues to rise. Food manufacturers put HFCS in almost everything we eat and drink. Profits before health is not a way to do business.

  • Ban coverage for erectile dysfunction products from government sponsored insurance coverage
    The uproar over providing women with coverage for personal decisions related to reproductive care begs the question of why no uproar over products for men's sexual freedom.

  • Happy Meal is a Healthy Meal
    To All Concerned, I am a mother of three and am trying to raise my kids to appreciate and respect their bodies and their health. This is very difficult to do in today's society. Fast food is everywhere and they want the toy to go with it. Are fast food chains teaching our kids that it is good to eat poorly? Kids associate French fries with toys and games. This is why our children are suffering from obesity and our health care system pays.

  • It's Time for Paid Maternal Leave
    The United States is the only industrialized country in the world that does not require employers to provide paid maternity leave. Even a woman in Afghanistan is entitled to her full salary for 12 weeks after the birth of a child. We're calling on congress to ensure American women have maternity leave policies at least as good as Afghan women.

  • congressional compenstion overhaul
    The current benefits that congress enjoys at taxpayers expense should be opened to scrutiny and a 20% reduction in pay as well as an increase in medical copays and deductibles. these co-pays and deductibles should be aligned with what coverage average workers recieve and should be implemented immediately until a reasonable bill can be put to the voters.

  • FDA: Regulate Arsenic in Food/Baby Food
    Darmouth College has released a study that shows there is a high content of arsenic in baby formula, cereal bars, and energy shots. This is even more significant due to the fact that the FDA doesn't regulate food products as they do water. This is one of many areas that is unregulated that clearly parallels other regulation.
