Extremist politicians in Congress and in the states want to pretend that the 2012 elections never even happened. In states like Ohio and Michigan, they've used the lame duck legislative session to barrel ahead with their anti-woman, anti-reproductive-rights agenda, pushing measures like mandatory ultrasound requirements and even outright criminalization of abortion prior to viability.
NOW is putting action plans in place right now to stop this continuing assault on women's basic right to abortion, birth control and other forms of reproductive health care, and we need you with us!
Our electoral wins this past November were just the beginning. We know we need to be ready for a barrage of regressive measures in 2013, and we are not about to back down. In the coming year, we will expand our outreach, education and media campaigns in key states and in the U.S. Congress, exposing our opponents' extremism and defeating their regressive proposals.
And our 2013 plan doesn't stop with a good defense -- we're going on offense too. We'll be laying the groundwork for passage of a strong Freedom of Choice Act, and mobilizing our NOW chapters, leaders and activists for decisive pro-woman victories in the next election cycle, and the next, and the next after that.
When you contribute to NOW's year-end campaign, you help us get a head start on moving forward and fighting back.
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.
