CALLING ALL DC FEMINISTS: Rally Today in Support of Pro-Choice Health Care Reform!

-- Please Forward This Message Widely --

Dear NOW Members and pro-choice allies,

We MUST protect our rights! We NEED you on the streets! NOW! After a
backroom deal late Friday night, and a floor vote late Saturday night,
the House has accepted restrictions on abortion that go far beyond
the despicable Hyde Amendment, which has denied federal funding of abortion
since 1976. We must denounce the House's passage of the Stupak Amendment.

We can not allow the Senate to incorporate similar language in its own

For more information, please see the following statement from our President
Terry O Neill:

Please join together with NOW activists over the lunch hour tomorrow to make
sure our Senators know women are watching. We will rally on the sidewalks
for all women, because we have been left out of the House health care bill.

Date: Monday, November 9
Time: 12 p.m. (noon)
Location: Meet at the corner of Constitution and Delaware
Walking a loop around Russell, Dirksen and Hart Senate Office Buildings
Bring: Cameras, NOW Rounds (we will bring some for those who need them)
Homemade signs* (please remember to write on both sides of the signs)

We will bring additional signs for those who need them.

Thank you,
Erin Matson
Action Vice President
National Organization for Women
