Two Congress Democrats Fight to Ban "Drive-Through Masectomies

Representatives Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., are sponsoring bills that would require insurance companies to pay for 2-day hospital stays and reconstructive surgery for women who have had masectomies.

Because the bill has stagnated in the House Commerce Comittee, the two women are using the Internet to start an online petition to pressure Congress to act.
