Mandatory ultrasound and "counseling" that dispenses inaccurate information about abortion. Bans on abortion by "telemedicine" and outright criminalization after 20 weeks. Renewed efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and other family planning clinics.
These are just a few of the measures being pushed by anti-abortion extremists in state after state, including Ohio, Arizona, Wisconsin and more. We are putting action plans in place right now to stop these kinds of egregious bills, and we need your help to succeed.
Just this week in Michigan's lame duck legislative session, a dangerous anti-abortion "superbill" passed the state senate and will be sent to the governor's desk. Meanwhile, the state House of Representatives is considering a "Let the Women Die" bill that would permit hospitals to let a pregnant woman die rather than perform a life-saving abortion.
But NOW is not backing down. We are in this to win, and with your help, we will.
Our victories in the 2012 elections showed that we know how to organize, mobilize and win. In the coming year, we will expand our outreach, education and media campaigns to spotlight the still-growing threats to abortion rights in states as well as in Congress, and reverse them. And we're creating a plan of action to lay the groundwork now -- this year -- for decisive pro-woman victories in the next election cycle, and the next, and the next after that.
By contributing to NOW's year-end campaign, you'll help us get a head start on moving forward with our pro-active agenda to ensure that all women have access to the full range of reproductive health care including abortion and birth control.
Your support for NOW is essential to keep us moving in the right direction. Please, make a gift to NOW today. Thank you for all you do for women.
