Don't patronize these 100 businesses, who are against birth control





NOW
They just can't help themselves. One hundred anti-woman businesses, religious entities, and nonprofits have come out of the woodwork and sued to block the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

What does this mean? It means that these companies believe they can use their religion to justify discrimination against women.
We've decided we won't utilize their services. We are asking you to stand with us and tell them they are wrong.
Groups like Priests for Life and the American Family Association will always stand in the way of women's rights. Companies like Eden Foods, Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp, M&N Plastics, and Freshway Foods aren't obvious contenders in the "culture war" - but they've take their stand.
And we're taking ours. Tell them you won't stand for this!
Contraception is basic health care for women. But one hundred entities -- The Dirty 100 -- think otherwise. They don't care that unintended pregnancy is highly associated with infant and maternal mortality. They want to make decisions for you! Let them know that you make your own healthcare decisions.
Not your boss. Not some bishop. Not some politician. You.
Thank you for all you do for women's equality,
--Terry, Chitra, Bonnie and the rest of us here at NOW
P.S. We hope you are as excited about our new online look and feel as we are!
