What anti-choice can do to your family


NARAL Pro-Choice America
They really laid it all out last night. Paul Ryantold the nation that a Romney-Ryan administration would oppose abortion in almost all cases. He claimed that providing women with basic health care is somehow a violation of religious freedom.And we agree entirely with Joe Biden: the next administration will have the power to reshape the Supreme Court, which could determine the future of reproductive freedom.Does it seem like you’re in the middle of a bad dream? It can’t be true that the anti-choice, anti-woman Romney-Ryan ticket is pulling closer to President Obama in the polls every day. It’s not possible that the extremist politician on stage last night could be elected vice president of the United Statesin less than four weeks…is it?It is possible. And it will happen. Unless we do something about it right now.

Please, Help us tell undecided pro-choice voters how terrible Romney, Ryan, and other extreme anti-choice candidates would be for women, and help support all our grassroots and lobbying work to protect choice at all levels. We need your help right now.

We don’t have much time. But we DO have a plan. We know the voters we must reach. We know how to persuade them. We know how to win.

All we need is you. Please join us and support our work ensuring reproductive rights for generations to come. Otherwise, what you saw last night could be the start of a long four years.

Sincerely,

Nancy Keenan

This election is going to come down to just a few key states. Ohio. Florida. Wisconsin. Colorado.Women’s rights, health, and lives hang in the balance.

Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and other anti-choice candidates would set women’s rights back by literally decades.

But NARAL Pro-Choice America has identified 1.2 million voters in nine key states who would vote for pro-choice candidates, if only they knew what I just told you.

Click here to help us get the word out, swing this election for President Obama and other pro-choice candidates, and support our grassroots and lobbying work to protect choice at all levels.

We’re launching an aggressive campaign to target voters in 25 swing counties. They’re women. They’re pro-choice. But they need to be reminded of how many of their rights would be taken away under a Romney presidency and an anti-choice Congress.

Will you help us put our electoral plan into action to contact these persuadable voters and tell them about the dangers of Mitt Romney and other extreme anti-choice candidates on the ballot, and to protect choice at all levels?

Thank you for all you do to protect choice.

Sincerely,

Nancy Keenan

This past weekend, Mitt Romney said that he wants the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade – the decision that recognized a woman’s constitutionally guaranteed right to choose.1

And you know what? He’s trying to make his position sound reasonable so that voters won’t notice.

We’re not about to let him get away with that!

We created this graphic to catch people’s attention – but I need your help to get it in front of as many people as possible.

Share this graphic on Facebook so that people know about Mitt’s plan to pack the Supreme Court with justices who will ban abortion.

Facebook graphic: Romney

When Romney appeared on “Meet the Press” this past weekend, he tried to sound reasonable by saying that people can disagree on the issue of abortion. But in the next breath he told viewers:

“Well, I don’t actually make the decision the Supreme Court makes and so they’ll have to make their own decision…. I hope to appoint justices for the Supreme Court that will follow the law and the constitution. And it would be my preference that they reverse Roe v. Wade and therefore they return to the people and their elected representatives the decisions with regards to this important issue.”

Let’s be clear: Mitt Romney wants to outlaw abortion.

I think that voters need to know where Romney stands – and that he’s ready to pack the Supreme Court with justices who will take away women’s freedom and privacy.

Tell your friends about Romney’s plan to take over the Supreme Court so that it can outlaw abortion. Share this graphic on your Facebook wall.

Thanks for standing up for women time and again.

My best,

Nancy Keenan

ACT NOW
Tell the Romney-Ryan Ticket What You ThinkWe’ve known for months who we’ll be supporting in November: President Obama.But this week has shown us exactly what we’re up against: anti-choice extremists who think that “legitimate” rape can’t cause pregnancy; a party that pretended to be horrified by such statements, then turned right around and proposed a platform that denies a woman her right to choice, privacy, and freedom; a presidential ticket that has supported “personhood” measures that would ban abortion in almost all cases.Tell Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: That’s not my platform. That’s not what I believe in. A platform based on disrespecting women has no place in our society.Tell the Romney-Ryan ticket to take the War on Women out of the GOP platform.Take action
HALL OF FAME AND HALL OF SHAME
Hall of Fame: President ObamaThis isn’t the first time we’ve awarded President Obama with the Hall of Fame listing. This month, we recognize the president because on August 1, the first phase of his no-cost contraceptive-coverage policy went into effect! It’s one of the greatest advancements in women’s health in decades. And it’s why we’re seeing women share photos online of their pharmacy receipts totaling zero dollars.

 

See what no-cost birth control means for women >>Hall of Shame: Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO)

Rep. Akin’s outrageous belief about women who have been raped and are facing potential pregnancy because of that traumatic experience are inexcusable.  Rep. Akin and his despicable views, which are unfortunately shared by other candidates seeking office this year, are nothing short of dangerous to women’s health.
