Family Building Act of 2001 (Bill H.R. 389) sign now

We, the undersigned, urge you to co-sponsor and/or support the Family Building Act of 2001 (HR 389) to amend the Public Health Service Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, and chapter 89 of title 5, United States Code, to require coverage for the treatment of infertility.

In an excerpt from the bill, Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Infertility is a disease affecting more than 6,000,000 American women and men, about 10 percent of the reproductive age population.

(2) Recent improvements in therapy make pregnancy possible for more couples than in past years.

(3) The majority of group health plans do not provide coverage for infertility therapy.

(4) A fundamental part of the human experience is fulfilling the desire to reproduce.

The primary sponsor for this bill is Rep. Anthony D. Weiner, and was introduced 1/31/2001. There are currently 21 co-sponsors. The latest major action regarding this bill was a referral to the Subcommittee on Employer-Employee relations on 3/15/2001. The entire bill can be seen by going to http://thomas.loc.gov and entering HR 389 in the By Bill Number search field.

It is requested that, in addition to signing this petition, all signers should also contact your Representative. Signature totals will be emailed periodically to members of the House of Representatives.
