… well, maybe not the world, but I did speak up to my legislators to request support of The Family Act of 2011 (S 965/HR 3522). Keiko, at the Infertility Voice, asked her readers to reach out to their legislators to request support of The Family Act of 2011, so I did. I wrote to all of Iowa’s senators and representatives whether or not they represented me, because I don’t like seeing that only 4% of the House of Representatives and 6% of the Senate support this bill. I almost didn’t believe those numbers because they seem too low.
I got lots of email responses, but today, I got a letter. A REAL letter! This letter came from Congressman Tom Latham and I think it’s neat. The reason I think it’s neat is that I believe we do too much electronically and I appreciate someone (or “his people”) taking the time to send a real letter (even if it is a canned response) saying they got my note and support the bill. Heck, I didn’t even send him a real letter – I sent an email.
Maybe I’ll get more letters from the other legislators I contacted, and maybe I won’t. But I am glad to see that at least one person in Iowa supports this bill.
Have you written to your legislators yet?
