California Moms to Lawmakers: 'Health Care Coverage is a Lifesaver for California Families'
Date:4/2/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- California moms and kids visited the Capitol in Sacramento on Tuesday to urge lawmakers to expand health care coverage for children. The group delivered packages of Lifesaver candies and more than 800 personalized messages from moms, dads and grandparents all over the state.

The moms are all members of MomsRising.org, an online grassroots organization that is working for paid family leave, flexible work options, excellent childcare and health care for all children. They delivered these "sweet" messages to let lawmakers know that covering uninsured kids is a priority for California families.

"California legislators must act soon in order to take advantage of health care funds that the U.S. Congress and President Obama have given the state to ensure that more children get health care coverage," said MomsRising.org Executive Director Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner. "As the economic crisis deepens, thousands of parents find themselves turning to state-funded health care programs like California's Healthy Families. Programs like these, which are more affordable, can be a real lifesaver for children who have no other way to get medical coverage."

Approximately 683,000 California children are uninsured. The messages from MomsRising.org include:

My daughter was born with a rare genetic condition that makes private health insurance out of our reach. Please don't leave her and the rest of CA kids high and dry!

Please, give hard-working families a chance to get ahead! Help us prepare for health emergencies by giving us access to health care for our children. Every time my child
