In addition, a Family Planning bill, HB 572, also raised considerable interest. HB 572 is currently under review by the House Health and Welfare Committee. If passed into law, it would give low-income women access to important health and family planning services. According to Mat, the bill does not impact Idaho financially and would be of great benefit to low-income women. Not only that, it would also benefit the state by reducing unplanned pregnancies and improving birth outcomes. Therefore, he encouraged attendees to write a courteous letter to Representative Eric Redman, to persuade him to vote yes on this critical bill.
Please take a few minutes to send a polite email to Rep. Redman at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
