Emergency Rally/Lobby Day on Dec 2


Hundreds of feminist, pro-choice activists are convening in Washington on Wednesday,
December 2 to take our message directly to the decision-makers voting on the future of our health care: Abortion is health care, STRIP STUPAK/PITTS!

On Nov. 7th, the House of Representatives passed the Stupak/Pitts amendment to the House version of health care reform; a last-minute, anti-choice amendment aimed at gutting abortion coverage for millions of women in the US. Not only does Stupak/Pitts restrict federal funds from paying for a woman's abortion, but for the first time in federal law, it restricts the type of coverage a woman could purchase with her own money!

If you can make it to DC on Dec. 2, join us for an Emergency Rally and Capitol Hill Visit Day!

Make appointments with your legislators and demand they stand up for safe, legal, and accessible abortion! Then, between your meetings, join the rally from 11:30 - 1:00pm in on Capitol Hill.

Remember to RSVP to the Facebook Event!

If DC isn't an option for you, take action where you are!
  • Schedule a visit in the local offices of your Senators and Representative.
  • Organize a campus call-in day and flood the phone lines of the Members' district and national offices.
  • Write an op-ed.
  • Hold your own rally.
  • Circulate the petition and flood the fax lines while you're at it!
  • Make your voice heard!
Women's rights and lives are not negotiating tools, and we will not stand for this!
