TAKE ACTION TO MAKE HEALTH CARE A RIGHT FOR ALL!

The Human Rights Campaign has issued this call for action:

"Take action with HRC today and ask the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to include sexual orientation within the definition of sex for purposes of Section 1557 and thank HHS for providing gender identity protections. Also, please ask HHS to refuse religious exemptions for health care providers when providing health care to LGBT people."
