What would health reform (if it happens) mean for women?

The big news out of Washington is, of course, today's bipartisan summit on health reform. (It's happening now and being streamed here.) The National Women's Law Center is concerned about what (the latest version of) President Obama's reform proposal might mean for women and their access to care, and they've posted on their Web site 8 "Questions to Ask About Health Reform Plans to Ensure They Meet the Needs of Women." It's a good read for anyone interested in women's health issues.
