Supreme Court will consider striking down a life-saving, anti-terrorism bill

It's ominous: This month the Supreme Court will actually consider striking down a life-saving Massachusetts "buffer zone" law that protects abortion providers, patients, and clinics from violent anti-choice protesters.
You read that right. The ability to keep women and their health care providers physically safe is under threat in the United States Supreme Court.
We have joined with our allies on friend-of-the-court briefs in both cases. But we're not stopping there.
We are also mounting a year-long campaign to let voters know just what is at stake for women -- in decisions being made right now in the courts, Congress, state legislatures, governors' mansions, and the White House -- and what they can do about it come Election Day 2014.
With your help, we will send more field organizers to work with grassroots leaders, training them to mobilize and energize women's rights supporters in their communities. But you and I know that personnel and training take money.
That's why I need your help.
Support NOW today and help us protect women's access to abortion, birth control, and the full range of reproductive health services.
Thanks for all you do to protect women's health and lives.

For women's lives,

Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women
