Received this e-mail today from Rep. Gary Peters' (D. MI-14) U.S. Senate campaign today:

Thanks to a new law that went into effect last week, Michigan women now have some of the most limited health care options in the country.

This winter, special interests in Michigan succeeded in passing legislation to ban insurance companies from covering abortion procedures in their regular policies, even in cases of rape or health of the mother.

Michigan’s new law is discriminatory and wrong. It places an unsafe barrier between women and their doctors, and it makes health care more expensive for women and their families.

Special interests have turned back the clock on women’s health in Michigan. Help me fight back: Sign our petition and stand against the discrimination of women in Michigan.

I am outraged by this discriminatory new law that makes insurance less affordable for women and restricts their access to health care.

Add your voice to our petition and stand up for women's health.

Thank you for supporting Michigan and fighting to make sure that everyone has access to the quality, affordable health care they deserve. I’m committed to this effort, and I hope you’ll join me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
