What we stood for outside the Supreme Court

Dear ,


One week ago today, I joined pro-choice activists on the sidewalk outside the Supreme Court to commemorate the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Also that day a so-called "March for Life" took place.

You know as well as I do that opponents of women's reproductive rights could give a hoot about women's lives -- and that's why I'm hoping you'll give generously to help us fight for reproductive justice.

The coming year is not going to be pretty:

• The same day as our demonstration, House Speaker John Boehner spoke to the so-called "March for Life" -- we can expect this man to push more anti-choice bills to the floor.

• Republican presidential candidates appear to be in a war with each other to define who is most against women's health (Rick Santorum's suggestion that rape victims should "make the best of a bad situation" is only one such example).

• We can expect to hear more about the "Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act," which would further stigmatize women of color who seek abortion care.

Elections have consequences for reproductive rights, and 2012 is a critical year for women's rights activists -- will you give today?

For women's lives,
Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women

P.S. Please give whatever you can afford -- even $25 helps NOW mobilize grassroots women's rights supporters in this critical election year.
