NARAL: What Stupak's Saying

Message Press Release

Dear Joan,

This is our VERY LAST CHANCE to stop Stupak-Nelson anti-choice politics in the health-care debate.

Right now, both the House and Senate versions of the bill include dangerous and unacceptable restrictions on abortion coverage. If we don't act immediately, women could face significant barriers to accessing abortion care in the new health system.

Add your name to our national petition to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and President Obama calling on them to fix the bill before bringing it to a final vote.

This bill is not a done deal. Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Reid, and President Obama are playing key roles in these final days of the health-care debate. That's why we've set a goal of sending them 30,000 unequivocal messages from pro-choice Americans like you: Women should not lose ground in the new health-care system.

Tell our pro-choice senators you are counting on them to keep the abortion-coverage ban out of the Senate bill

January 20, 2010:
30,000 Voices
1 Better Bill

Tell Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Reid, and President Obama to stop Stupak-Nelson anti-choice politics once and for all.

Just yesterday, Rep. Bart Stupak told The New York Times that he would stop at nothing to block the health-reform bill if it doesn't include his abortion-ban language.1 At the same time, a coalition of anti-choice groups announced new plans to pressure members of Congress to stick with the Stupak abortion-coverage ban.2

This is our last chance to get this done to make sure that anti-choice lawmakers and extremists don't get away with using this historic legislation to roll back our reproductive freedom.

Thank you for your continued support in this fight.

My best,

Nancy Keenan
