Speak Out Against Anti-Woman, Anti-Child, Anti-Health Budget Cuts

    1. Sponsored by

      Center for Reproductive Rights

At this very moment, anti-choice lawmakers are negotiating away the rights of women and children in an attempt to “balance the budget.” 

But we know the truth: This reckless bill proposes slashing federal spending on Title X, WIC, and Head Start, but it won’t even dent the deficit -- the cuts merely destroy programs the right wing hates. 

Congress has avoided a showdown over shutting down the government by enacting a two-week extension. But two weeks will go by in the blink of an eye, and lawmakers are meeting now in back rooms to hammer out their next deal on the budget. 

All of us need to speak up and speak out against the blatantly anti-woman, anti-child, anti-health attacks being considered.

Urge your members of Congress to reject these irresponsible funding cuts targeting poor women, pregnant women, children and infants. Take action now to show support for these critical programs.

      I really would like to see this post, reposted, repeated and shared by everyone who visits my wall or finds this on his or her wall... I will indeed keep this at the top of my list each and every day until I know that everybody understands that, "more than four-fifths of the confirmed victims of sex trafficking - about 83 percent – were (are indeed) U.S. citizens,..." is a fact.

      Every fetus must be brought to term--so they can become slaves of the Republican party's Corporate Overlords.
