Petition By: NRSC

Democrats have made extreme pro-abortion policies a key part of their Party Platform. Their “pro-choice” movement is anti-life. As declared in our country’s founding doctrine, all Americans have a right to life, even the unborn.
It’s time to shed light and take a stand against the ever-growing- and well-funded- movement on the left to support late-term aboretions. The legislation they support devalues human lives.
Since taking office, and even on the campaign trail before he was elected, President Trump made a promise to fight to protect the unborn. From appointing conservative judges to keeping Planned Parenthood in check, he has worked to keep those promises and more.
Will you join President Trump and his allies in this fight?
Stand for LIFE and sign your name in support of the President and his allies’ efforts to protect the lives of the unborn!

To Fellow Americans:

I stand with you in the fight to end late-term abortion!

Sincerely,

Petition By:
California Life Sciences Association

You should never have to pay more for prescription drugs than it’s costing your insurance provider and PBM (Pharmacy benefit managers). AB 2863 would get rid of “clawbacks,” which means patients pay more than is due for their prescriptions — and require a fair payment structure for the advantage of the patient, and not the insurance corporations and pharmacy benefit managers.

To CA Legislature:
As your constituent, I’m writing to urge you to support AB2863. Clawbacks occur when commercially insured patients’ copayments exceed the total cost of the drug to their insurer or pharmacy benefit manager. In other words, patients end up paying more than the cost of their prescription.


This bill will allow pharmacists to charge consumers the lowest available cost, and limit the amount that patients have to pay for medications.


AB 2863 will help increase the fairness of copays and help patients in our state. I hope you will support the bill.
Thank you,

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Petition By: Alzheimer’s Impact Movement

Alzheimer’s is the only leading cause of death in America without a way to prevent, cure, or even slow its progression.

What’s more: Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in America. In 2018, Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the United States $277 billion, with $186 billion being borne by Medicare and Medicaid. This means nearly one out of five Medicare dollars is spent on a person with Alzheimer’s.

Unless we move quickly to address this crisis and find better treatments for those who have it, these costs will grow swiftly in lock step with the numbers of those affected, and Alzheimer’s will increasingly overwhelm our health care system.

Urge your members of Congress to support a $425 million increase for research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Alzheimer’s disease for FY 2019.

To Congress:
As an Alzheimer’s Impact Movement advocate, I am writing to request that you support a $425 million increase for research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Alzheimer’s disease for FY 2019.


Alzheimer’s is the only leading cause of death in America without a way to prevent, cure, or even slow its progression. What’s more, according to the findings of an NIH-funded study that appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, Alzheimer’s is the most expensive disease in America. In 2018, the United States is estimated to spend $277 billion caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, with $186 billion being borne by Medicare and Medicaid. This means nearly one out of five Medicare dollars is spent on a person with Alzheimer’s. Unless we move quickly to address this crisis and find better treatments for those who have it, these costs will grow swiftly in lock step with the numbers of those affected, and Alzheimer’s will increasingly overwhelm our health care system.

Because age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer’s, the rapidly growing number of older Americans will lead to a corresponding rapid growth in the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease. The number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease is projected to grow from an estimated 5.7 million today to as many as 14 million in 2050. Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops the disease, and the proportion of individuals affected rises with age.

Alzheimer’s disease also poses an increasingly dire threat to our nation’s fiscal future. We must decisively address this national epidemic. With increasing numbers of Americans affected by this devastating disease and its escalating impact on the federal budget, we simply must allocate resources to overcome this disease. Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
