ACTION: Stop WoW : protect a woman's access to health care

From the ACLU webpages

After her adventures in Oz, Dorothy couldn’t wait to get back to Kansas. But if she lived there now, she might not be so eager to return.  Governor Sam Brownback has just signed yet another bill that makes it more difficult for Kansas women to get the health care they need.

And we know this is not an isolated attack.  Kansas is the latest frontline in the current round of attacks in politicians’ war on women. Arkansas, North Dakota, and Alabama, have also each recently passed draconian measures to outlaw abortion care or otherwise eliminate a woman’s access to it.  The worst part is this trend might not stop if we continue to let politicians to interfere in our most personal and private decisions. Troy Newman, an abortion opponent from Operation Rescue, was recently quoted saying he thinks the Kansas law is “delightful” because it “opens up so many avenues” to block women from accessing abortion care.

Stop The Abortion Bans

Act Now

But we can keep it from getting worse - we have to.  Now is the time to tell our elected officials to stop interfering in our private decisions and to leave these decisions with a woman, her doctor and her family. Tell your friends to spread the word.  Politicians need to stay out of our private lives.

Please consider

Let politicians know where you stand by signing this pledge:

"I stand with men, women and families across the country who believe in a woman's right to make personal, private health care decisions. I will do everything in my power to protect a woman's access to health care and her ability to make the best decisions for herself and her family, free from political interference."
