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.
