Amnesty International Urges Congress to Turn Attention to Needed Reforms on Maternal and Childbirth Care
Date:3/22/2010

ities will remain in the health care system, with care continuing to be rationed by ability to pay. Despite new regulations, the insurance industry not only remains insufficiently accountable, but will also now play an expanded role in health care financing," Cox said.

"Public programs are our best vehicles for making health care completely accessible and accountable, and we applaud Congress for expanding and strengthening Medicaid by raising the income-eligibility ceiling, expanding coverage to those not currently eligible, including adults without children, and increasing reimbursement rates to help ensure that low-income people get the care they need."

Cox added: "Increased support for community health centers will help ensure that all members of our society have access to care, regardless of ability to pay or other factors irrelevant to health needs. They are also crucial sources of prenatal and postnatal care."

Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning grassroots activist organization with more than 2.2 million supporters, activists and volunteers in more than 150 countries campaigning for human rights worldwide. The organization investigates and exposes abuses, educates and mobilizes the public, and works to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.
