TAKE ACTION: Senate Committee meeting THIS WEEK!
September 13th, 2011
This April, the House of Representatives balanced the budget on the backs of low-income women in a last-minute backroom deal that abruptly stripped the District of Columbia's ability to use local funds to pay for abortions for poor women. This outrageous new abortion ban overruled the authority of DC's own elected officials, denying Medicaid-eligible women vital reproductive health care and gambling with their lives.
Now the Senate Appropriations Committee is preparing to extend this dangerous ban in the 2012 appropriations bill.
Don't let it happen again!
If your Senator is on the Committee, it is extremely important that you call immediately, before the full Committee meets this Thursday. If you live in Louisiana, Arkansas, Alaska or Illinois, it is especially important that you call and leave a message.
Tell your Senator: "I support DC home rule and abortion rights for all women, regardless of income. I ask that you vote against any attempt to restrict the District's right to spend its own money."
Be sure to call today!
