Action Alert: A pregnant teenager is a life worth saving
How does it feel to be a teenage woman holding a positive pregnancy test? Most of the men controlling more than 83 percent of Congress have no idea, and yet the chief masterminds of the War on Women are at it again, this time pushing a Teen Endangerment Act that would criminalize driving a teenage woman to an abortion provider in another state. Will you give to NOW today to help save young women's lives?
The past week has seen one ultra-conservative after another, from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to Rush Limbaugh, insist there is no War on Women -- maybe they should have a talk with the leadership of the House of Representatives, which is now charging ahead with a bill that would endanger the lives of vulnerable teenagers in need of abortion care. Do they think women won't notice this hypocrisy?
