Speak Out Against the D.C. Abortion Ban!
Anti-choice senators are pushing to extend the D.C. abortion ban, and we need your help to stop them.
The ban blocks the city of Washington, D.C. from using its own locally raised money to provide abortion care to low-income women. D.C.’s city leaders strongly oppose this ban.
It’s outrageous for anti-choice politicians to tell local leaders how they can and cannot spend their revenues. No other jurisdiction or state is told how to use its locally raised dollars. And the worst part is that women who need help the most are the ones who suffer.
Your emails are already working: on September 14, a Senate committee did not include the ban in a key funding bill. This is a huge step forward, but we haven't won yet. We must keep up the pressure.
Tell your senators to stand up against anti-choice meddling in Washington, D.C.’s local affairs and to end the D.C. abortion ban.
By taking action, you'll receive pro-choice updates and urgent emails.
As your constituent, I am writing to urge you to oppose any attempt to insert an abortion ban into the FY'12 appropriations bill for the District of Columbia.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
