Action Alert: No Birth Control for Married Couples?

NARAL Pro-Choice america

Donate nowAnti-choice Virginia gubernatorial candidate, Bob McDonnell, has opposed birth control -- even for married couples -- and states that "homosexuality and abortion...are both cause and effect of family breakdown." 1

We need your help getting this information to Virginia voters.

Just weeks ago, anti-choice McDonnell had a double-digit lead in the polls that has since dropped to four points according to one poll and two points in another. 2

Most importantly, three of every 10 likely Virginia voters are still undecided. 3

That's probably why the Republican National Committee recently poured over $7 million into this race to defeat pro-choice candidate Creigh Deeds!

We urgently need your support to send a mailing to 77,835 Independent and Republican pro-choice swing voters in Virginia.

Our chief financial officer says if the money isn't raised, we can't mail the piece. We need $44,935. We've got $7,128 to go. Without the full $44,935, we will miss the chance to educate thousands of undecided voters about Bob McDonnell's anti-choice extremism. Please give now.

Your donation is a smart investment. In its 2008 post-election analysis, National Journal ranked NARAL Pro-Choice America second among the nation's top 21 political organizations for our impressive win rate among endorsed congressional candidates in hotly contested races.

Virginia voters deserve to know the truth about Bob McDonnell - a candidate who doesn't believe in birth control for married couples.

Help us send this very important mailing. Please donate today!

P.S. We only need $7,128 more to mail this piece to 77,835 pro-choice Republican and Independent voters in Virginia. If you've already donated, we appreciate your support, but ask you to consider an additional gift at this time. If you have yet to give, please do so today! Your support of this and all of our work makes a tremendous difference in the lives of women and their families.
