From World Can’t Wait:

Protest the Democrats’ Abortion Ban.
Nothing short of being in the streets!

What You Can Do to Protest the Stupak Amendment:

Why should anti-abortion fanatics in Congress be allowed to set the terms for women’s lives?

One house of Congress passed health care “reform” including the Stupak-Pitts Amendment which extends the federal ban on abortion to millions more women. Even women paying for private insurance plans with their own money will not be able to buy abortion coverage.

Theocrats who believe they are on a mission from God, advocate the subjugation of women, and think gay people should burn in hell, don’t back down without a fight. Now the Senate is debating health care reform. This abortion ban cannot stand!

We need to set our own terms with widespread resistance and visible protest.
