Stop the Republican War on Women

From People for the American Way:
"The Tea Party and Religious Right-dominated House of Representatives passed one of the most sweeping attacks on choice ever. If we can't stop it in the Senate, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" (H.R. 3) will resurrect the failed "Stupak ban" from the health care debate, effectively banning even private coverage of abortion care ... and a tax provision in the bill will could mean that rape and incest survivors who choose abortion care would be audited by the IRS.
We expect that Republicans in the Senate will now try to push this legislation through as an amendment to another bill. Senate Leadership can't let H.R. 3 be sneaked onto the floor as an amendment and ALL Senators need to know that Americans oppose the House GOP's war on women."

Dear Senators,
Americans want jobs, not extremist attacks on women's fundamental constitutional rights. Senate passage of H.R. 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," would be a disaster for women's rights and their basic health care.
Please OPPOSE H.R. 3 and do all you can to STOP the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act."
