NOW celebrates Albuquerque voters for defending a woman's right to choose
New Mexico voters reject municipal 20-week abortion ban
November 20, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Organization for Women (NOW) celebrates the voters of Albuquerque for rejecting a ban on abortions past 20 weeks. The proposed ban would have been unprecedented, but voters kept Albuquerque from being the first municipality to explicitly limit women's access to abortion care in this way.
We congratulate the numerous NOW leaders and activists who, together with their coalition allies in Respect ABQ Women, knocked on doors, made phone calls and helped voters get to the polls yesterday. Voters rejected this radical ballot measure because they know abortion clinics are a lifeline for thousands of women.
NOW will continue to fight to keep clinics open in communities and states around the country.

Dear Radical Feminists in attendance at the Shulamith Firestone Women’s Liberation Memorial Conference on What is to be Done,
I too, was gathered with you for this conference in New York City. I was excited to be involved in a consciousness raising session, and interested to hear your collective thoughts on what is to be done. I had heard the criticisms of transphobia within your movement, but naively hoped such sentiment came from a small, removed faction. As I sat among you, and your notable speakers, I realized I couldn’t have been more wrong. Transphobia and transmisogyny are alive and well within your walls. The disdain with which you referred to trans women and your collective refusal to accept them as women was shocking and horrifying. This letter is to voice what I did not have the courage, or the words to say when I was in your presence.
