NARAL: Rallying to Stop Stupak

NY Rally
See pictures and video from our awesome day of action.

Follow our tweets from Wednesday on Twitter.

Tell your representative how a lack of insurance coverage for abortion would affect you.
On Wednesday, NARAL Pro-Choice New York joined forces with Planned Parenthood of New York City and the New York Civil Liberties Union to head to Washington, D.C. for a national day of action to pass health-care reform and stop Stupak. We were there to let our members of Congress know that the dangerous Stupak-Pitts amendment - the harshest attack on a woman's right to choose in a generation - must not make it into the final health-care bill.
We participated in an amazing rally with activists from more than 60 organizations from across the country, advocates, senators, and representatives, all of whom know the importance of fighting for health-care reform that does not include a ban on abortion coverage.
Participants from New York met with Reps. Bill Owens, Eliot Engel, Joseph Crowley, Anthony Weiner, Carolyn Maloney, Gary Ackerman, Steve Israel, Carolyn McCarthy, Edolphus Towns, Yvette Clarke, Michael McMahon, Nydia Velazquez, Charles Rangel, Jerrold Nadler, Jose Serrano and Eric Massa, as well as Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
All of our New York Congress members stressed that they are most influenced by personal stories and thoughts from constituents. If you weren't able to make it to D.C. with us Wednesday, take a minute to let your representative know why you support insurance coverage for abortion care. Visit the House of Representatives site to find your representative, then submit your thoughts online.
Thanks for your support throughout this process. With your continued help, we will ensure that health-care reform does not leave women out in the cold.
