BREAKING: women's clinic Buffer zone struck down






This hypocrisy is outrageous
Dear Nusrat,
I'm still in shock. The United States Supreme Court decided in McCullen v. Coakley that clinic buffer zones are unconstitutional.
This is just one more vicious attack on women's rights. Can I count on your support?
Clinics face daily protest and regular threats, many of which turn into acts of violence. The Court dismissed the fact that the Massachusetts buffer zone law at the heart of McCullen v. Coakley was passed after a gunman attacked two Massachusetts clinics, killing two people and injuring five others.
We must reverse the 30-year right wing campaign to take over the federal court system. To do that, we must elect candidates that support women's issues -- especially in the U.S. Senate which confirms judicial nominees.
Violence and harassment against clinics has continued right up to the present. While the Court was deliberating on this decision, a clinic in Montana was so severely vandalized that it was shut down and may not reopen.
NOW is going all out to educate voters, tell them where their candidates stand, and make sure they get to the polls on Election Day. But that kind of mobilization requires resources. Can you give today and help us ensure reproductive rights for all?


Thank you for all you do for women's lives,

Terry O'Neill
President
