Take Action with NOW

Sign the Pledge for Reproductive Freedom

Women across the country have lost a true champion. The cold-blooded murder of Dr. George Tiller in church is a stark reminder that women's bodies are still a battleground, and health care professionals are on the frontlines. We are angered. We are saddened. And we will not be silenced.

We must redouble our efforts to maintain safe and legal access to abortion and birth control. When you sign this pledge, you can choose to send a message to the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security and let them know that the murder and intimidation of abortion providers is domestic terrorism.

I pledge to ...

» Speak out: There's power in words. I won't use the words "pro-life" to describe anti-abortion groups, and I'll make an effort to write the editors of my local papers when they use the term. Murder is not pro-life.

» Stay informed: I'll be aware of reproductive rights legislation in my state, including so-called "pharmacist conscience" laws designed to deny women access to birth control and emergency contraception and "fetal personhood" laws intended to criminalize both abortion and many forms of birth control. One way of staying informed is subscribing to NOW action alerts (you can sign up automatically through this pledge).

» Get involved locally: I'll reach out to groups that provide clinic defense or escort services in my area, work for low-cost contraceptive access in my community, participate in a vigil in Dr. Tiller's honor, or get involved with my local NOW chapter.

» Get involved online: If possible, I'll use Twitter, Facebook and blogs to connect with others across the country and worldwide working for reproductive freedom.
