Dear ,

Become a NOW FAN today! Donate

It has come to this: NOW had to fight the Tea Party to retain birth control and screenings for cancer, STIs and HIV/AIDS for millions of low-income women for the rest of the 2011 fiscal year. Well, we got that.

But this victory was only partial, and new threats have already appeared in the form of the Republican leadership’s 2012 budget proposal. We are doing everything we can to fight these extremists, and we need your help.

The final 2011 budget deal cuts $38 billion from programs that are more likely to serve women and employ women as well. And in a cruel, spiteful move, the local District of Columbia government is now forbidden to use local funds for abortion care for low-income women.

With your help, NOW can and will fight back against these threats to women’s health, livelihoods and our very lives. A small monthly contribution of $10, $25 or even $50 will make you a member of the Feminist Action Network (FAN) and a key contributor to our efforts to keep reproductive health care safe, legal and accessible for all women.

These regular gifts are monthly funding we can count on, and they help more than you will ever know, as we work to thwart the efforts of a House majority intent on cutting off women’s access to birth control, mammograms, STI screenings and more – in addition to overturning Roe v. Wade.

With the 2011 budget deal done, the 2012 budget fight has already begun. The House leadership plans to threaten a government default on U.S. Treasury bonds unless they annihilate Medicare as we know it and give even more tax breaks to the wealthiest. And you can bet they'll go after our reproductive rights again.

We don’t have a moment to lose. Become a NOW FAN and join the special group supporting our work for justice and equality.

Please let me hear from you right away.

For women's lives,
Terry O'Neill, President
National Organization for Women

P.S. Every dollar counts. If you are unable to make a monthly gift, please consider the most generous one-time contribution you can afford.
