Let's keep women's reproductive rights out of the hands of antio-woman extremists like Gov. Rick Perry. Donate Now!
Dear ,

Despite Rep. Wendy Davis' heroic filibuster, Texas' legislature has passed an anti-abortion bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, closes abortion clinics and blocks doctors from performing the procedure. Proponents claim the bill protects women's health. But they're not fooling anyone, least of all women voters.

Texas' anti-abortion bill is one of a slew of reactionary laws across the nation restricting or drastically regulating abortion. The most aggressive attack came earlier this year in North Dakota, which passed a law to ban abortions after six weeks and approved an amendment to the state's constitution outlawing abortion altogether. The amendment, which will have to be approved by voters in 2014 before it can become law, defines human life as beginning at fertilization.

NOW is taking action to stop this latest wave of extreme anti-woman laws — please help safeguard women's reproductive rights by making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us stop these vicious attacks on women's basic rights.

Abortion is at the forefront of the 2013-14 elections that will determine who controls Congress and dozens of state legislatures during the final two years of President Barack Obama's term. With a number of critical state elections hanging in the balance, NOW needs your help more than ever to activate grassroots campaigns letting voters know what's at stake for women, and where the candidates stand.

, donate today to help NOW raise the $100,000 we need to fight unconstitutional anti-abortion bills and mobilize NOW's We're Not Fooled campaign in states where women's rights and lives are threatened by anti-woman lawmakers and candidates.

Thanks for all that you do for women and NOW!

For women's lives,

Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women
