President Bush is trying to force Congress to back down on several choice-related issues as Congress finishes its business before the end of the year.
That's why we need to tell Congress we've come too far to give up.
Choice-related goals in Congress are to repeal the global gag rule, increase funding for family-planning programs, and improve "abstinence-only" programs so they'll be less harmful to teens.
Will you help in sending a message to Congress, urging lawmakers to stand firm for these commonsense policy goals?
President Bush is threatening to veto legislation over these issues, and while leadership in Congress is (thankfully) now in pro-choice hands, the numbers are still stacked against us.
Members of Congress need to hear that people like us care about these issues.
As your constituent, I’m writing to urge you to support three issues as you finalize the year’s work: fully repeal the global gag rule, increase funding for family-planning programs, and improve “abstinence-only” programs so they’ll be less harmful to teens.
These commonsense measures are critical to the lives and health of women both here in the United States and abroad. Together, these policies will help prevent unintended pregnancy and, therefore, reduce the need for abortion.
Please do not sacrifice these important advances in women’s lives as you finish business for the year.
