Stop the Nationwide 20-week Abortion Ban | National Organization for Women (NOW)
,

Just as we were celebrating Sen. Wendy Davis' amazing filibuster defeat of a bill that would have criminalized abortion at 20 weeks and closed nearly all the women's health clinics in Texas, Governor Rick Perry has called a second special session of the Texas Legislature to try to pass this dangerous bill next week.

This law will threaten the lives of countless women. There is NO way we are going to let this measure prevail.

, we can't let the momentum of Tuesday's victory fizzle now. We need you on board with NOW to ensure we spread the word and mobilize pro-woman Texans to speak out against this unconstitutional abortion ban. Please make a donation today and help us defend women's rights and health against anti-woman extremists.

For women's lives,

Terry O'Neill, President

Dear ,

BREAKING: the Republican leadership's mask is slipping badly as they double down in their war on women. Their stealth strategy to hide their true intentions behind softer rhetoric is fooling no one.

Last week, House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor muscled through H.R. 1797 — which would criminalize abortion nationwide at 20 weeks' gestation — on a party-line vote.

And last night, the whole world watched in shock and anger as the Republican-led Texas Senate bent and broke its own rules in an (ultimately futile) attempt to shut down Sen. Wendy Davis' filibuster of a draconian anti-reproductive health bill. If successful, this bill would have resulted in the closing of 37 of the state's 42 women's health clinics and criminalized abortion at 20 weeks.

, I need your help to meet our $100,000 fundraising goal by June 30 to defend women's rights and health against anti-woman extremists.

With your support, NOW can activate our field organizers in up to a dozen states to mobilize feminist activists and empower their champions in elected office by:
  • Conducting outreach efforts to educate women and all voters on the growing threats to reproductive freedom and candidates’ positions on issues impacting women’s lives;
  • Working closely with NOW’s hundreds of chapters and our allies to build powerful grassroots support for access to abortion services and other reproductive healthcare; and
  • Organizing massive get-out-the-vote campaigns to ensure that voters get to the polls to elect pro-woman candidates.

We will never go back and we will never give up our rights. Your generous donation today can help NOW mobilize our We’re Not Fooled campaign in at-risk states, like Texas, Mississippi, Virginia, Ohio, and others.

Please don’t wait — every day, right wing extremists are doing all they can to overturn Roe v. Wade. And we must do all we can to replace anti-woman legislators with champions of our rights.

Donate as much as you can today to protect women's rights and lives against anti-woman bills and the lawmakers who purvey them.

Thanks for all that you do,

Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women
