If you are a woman who has used contraception, you're not alone! The vast majority of sexually active women in this country -- including Catholic women -- have used a contraceptive at some point.
And yet, unbelievably, right-wing religious zealots are going all out to demonize birth control, while Rush Limbaugh piles on by viciously attacking a young woman for merely offering to testify before Congress in favor of contraceptive coverage. Help NOW fight back!
The War on Women is all too real and potentially devastating to our access to basic preventive health care. NOW is responding with a nationwide voter education and mobilization project, and we need your help to make it bigger than ever.
We must get the message out about what is at stake for women in the 2012 elections. And we are determined to remind all politicians: Those who act to restrict birth control will pay a heavy price at the polls -- and NOW has a plan to make that happen. You can help.
We have an opportunity this year to oust the anti-choice, anti-woman extremists who swept into office in 2010 and replace them with women who will champion our issues and fight for our rights.
That's where you come in. Your contribution will help us succeed in this ambitious mobilization project. Every dollar counts as we aim to thwart the efforts of the current House majority to deny women basic reproductive health care and then send those legislators packing in November.
We don't have a moment to spare. Please let me hear from you right away.
Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women
