Cutting family planning, birth control, screenings for cancer and STIs. Ending Medicare as we know it. Cutting Social Security benefits, and slashing Medicaid funding so severely that thousands of nursing homes would go out of business. The House leadership is bent on doing all of this. We are working as hard as we can to save these programs that are so essential to women, and you can help right now.

Right now, Republicans and Democrats are meeting behind closed doors to come up with a "compromise" budget plan -- but there are no women in the room! Yet we know that women will be disproportionately affected by cuts to programs like family planning, prenatal care and infant nutrition, not to mention Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid. Meanwhile, the people clamoring for these cuts are the same ones who want to increase military spending and extend tax breaks for corporations and multimillionaires. We say: Make the wealthiest pay their fair share, bring the troops home, and create a jobs program that would put women and men back to work.
NOW activists around the country are organizing, educating, collaborating with allies and meeting with their senators and representatives -- in other words, taking action to make our voices heard. If you haven't renewed already, please renew your membership today.
In the "richest" country in the world, women deserve better than to be forced to bear the brunt of budget cuts and program closures. I'm depending on you to help NOW keep fighting back.
