Tue, Dec 8: Repro Rights Action Committee Meeting and phone-bank for choice

Stop the Abortion Ban! Action Needed NOW


Women's access to abortion is in jeopardy.  Let's make sure that insurance coverage for abortion is not stripped from health care reform.  This would be the largest restriction on abortion access in this country since Roe v. Wade, and we need you to help stop it.

It is expected that Senators Orrin Hatch and Ben Nelson will propose an amendment as early as TODAY that will impose the same restrictions as Stupak-Pitts:  denying health insurance that covers abortion to millions of women.
 
What you can do: 
1)  Call your Senators today, and ask them to vote NO on the Hatch-Nelson amendment.
Thank Senator Schumer (212.486.4430) and Senator Gillibrand (212.688.6262)

for standing up for choice and for women.  Send email message NOW.
 
2)  Join our Reproductive Rights Action Committee Meeting and phone-bank for choice, tomorrow night,
Tuesday, December 8th
from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at the NOW-NYC office,

150 W. 28th St., Ste. 304 @ 6th Avenue.  Donate your cell phone minutes for a good cause.
 
 
3)  Forward this email to five friends—especially to friends in other states—
and get them involved!  Send email message NOW to your Senators.


Let's show our pro-choice majority strength:
trading women's health for votes is not an option. 
Help NOW-NYC get loud!  We cannot afford to lose this battle.
