Tell Senators: No Abortion Funding Ban

Keep Abortion Legal

TAKE ACTION:

Once again, abortion rights opponents are plotting to use the federal budgeting process as a means to punish low-income women in the District of Columbia.

In an 11th-hour spending deal last spring, the radical right succeeded in tacking on an undemocratic ban on D.C. using its own tax dollars to cover abortion care. The ban overrules the authority of D.C.'s locally elected officials, disregards the principles of the Home Rule Act, and denies Medicaid-eligible women access to critical reproductive health care. Now, abortion rights opponents want to extend this ban by including it in the 2012 budget, which the Senate Appropriations Committee is taking up this week.

If your senators are on the committee, please call them as soon as possible, and tell them you support D.C. home rule and abortion rights for all women, regardless of income.
