We're emailing you together because the situation in Florida is urgent. Amendment 6, on the November general election ballot, is a state constitutional amendment that could endanger women's health and interfere with a woman's decision as to whether or not to end a pregnancy.
Politicians in Tallahassee put Amendment 6 on the ballot, inserting politics where it doesn't belong – in a woman's doctor's office.
Half of your emergency contribution will go to the Vote No on 6 Campaign, a statewide coalition that is purchasing ads on television and radio.
The other half will support our statewide grassroots work, including our college campus campaign. We need money for paid on-the-ground student organizers, supplies, campaign signs and leaflets, and transportation between schools for our organizers.
We are counting on you. In just the past year, you have helped us defeat an amendment in Mississippi that would have granted constitutional "personhood" to a fertilized egg, and defeat an amendment in North Dakota that would have denied a woman basic medical care such as birth control.
