For months, we’ve hinted at an upcoming campaign to support the Hyde Amendment. Today, we finally go public. Our press release is below.
The short version: we are going to flood the internet with photos of people who have been born through the Medicaid program. These are the voices that matter most, because a significant fraction of young Medicaid recipients would be dead today if not for the Hyde Amendment. In fact, the Hyde Amendment is credited with preventing over a million abortions.
The big event is September 30 (the 40th anniversary of the Hyde Amendment’s enactment), but we need your help today. Here are three things you can do right now to support #HelloHyde:
- Ask your parents if you were born through the Medicaid program. If the answer is yes, get your #HelloHyde name tag and submit your photo at HelloHyde.org!
- Tell your friends about #HelloHyde. If you have a large group wanting to participate in the photo campaign, we can send you bulk name tags. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Sign up for email updates at HelloHyde.org.
- Make a donation so we can reach more people through paid advertising.
