There are several HTTP clients for Python. One popular one is Requests.

I finally found a code that was working!

import os
import time
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

GPIO.setup(10, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_DOWN)
state = 0

while True:
    if GPIO.input (10) == GPIO.HIGH:
        if state == 0:
            os.system ("curl -X POST")
            state = 1
            time.sleep (0.5)
    elif GPIO.input (10) ==GPIO.LOW:
        if state == 1:
            state = 0
