Tell Congress: Stop the War on Women

This petition had 74,823 supporters

Republicans are waging an all-out war on women -- and we need to stop them in their tracks.

Even after voters rejected an initiative in Mississippi that would have banned all abortions in the state, even for victims of rape or incest, Congressional Republicans have introduced three bills copying the Mississippi initiative.  

The GOP’s War on Women just doesn’t stop. Earlier this fall, Congressman Cliff Stearns (R - FL), chair of a House oversight subcommittee, launched a far-reaching investigation against one of the most important providers of health care for American women -- Planned Parenthood. It’s a modern day witch hunt. 

Rather than creating jobs for Americans, Republicans are pushing a reckless agenda to deny women and their families access to critical health care services like cancer screenings, maternity care, and contraception. They want to get rid of Planned Parenthood once and for all.

In this battle, we have strong allies: EMILY’s List champions in the Senate like Barbara Mikulski, Patty Murray, and Kirsten Gillibrand -- but we need to grow their ranks. Having more pro-choice, Democratic women in office will mean that anti-choice, anti-woman legislation never sees the light of day. 

Republicans are more committed than ever to an extreme agenda that shreds the social safety net American women need to take care of themselves and their children.

The campaign to Stop the War on Women needs your voice. Tell the Republicans NO:

-- NO to taking away the rights and freedoms of American women.

-- NO to threatening the health of millions of women and their families.

-- NO to sneak attacks on women's right to choose.

Take action today. Speak up and tell Republicans NO to the War on Women.
