URGENT: House Bargains Away Women's Health

The National Organization for Women
The House of Representatives has dealt a devastating blow to women's fundamental right to self-determination in order to buy a few votes for health care reform.
We need your help and we need it NOW. Please contribute today.
The Stupak Amendment, if incorporated into the final version of health insurance reform legislation, will:
  • Prevent women receiving tax subsidies from using their own money to purchase private insurance that covers abortion;
  • Prevent women participating in the public health insurance exchange, administered by private insurance companies, from using 100 percent of their own money to purchase private insurance that covers abortion;
  • Prevent low-income women from accessing abortion entirely, in many cases.
Will you donate today to help us defeat the Stupak Amendment and achieve health care reform that actually meets women's reproductive health care needs?
We must protect the rights we fought for in Roe v. Wade. We cannot and will not allow a health care bill to pass that strips millions of women of their existing access to abortion.
Birth control and abortion are integral aspects of women's health care needs. Health care reform should not be a vehicle to obliterate a woman's fundamental right to choose. We urgently need your support today.
And after you contribute, call your Senator and urge him or her to support a health care bill that respects women's constitutionally protected right to abortion.
For justice and equality,
Terry O'Neill
NOW President
