We’re not going to let them win

Republicans in Texas went against the will of the people and passed an extreme anti-choice bill. Our National Director of Women's Outreach sent the following email in response.

Friend,

Across the country, anti-choice activists are paying attention to what you're going to do right now.

Late last night, the Texas legislature passed an extraordinarily restrictive law that will make it illegal for a woman to receive an abortion after 20 weeks, and may shutter all but five of the 42 abortion clinics in the state.

The impact of this law will be felt by women and families far outside of Texas, because its passage will embolden the forces all around the country who want to roll back the right of a woman to make her own health decisions, one state at a time.

Stopping them will require both resources and political will.

Show them you're not going to let them win -- add your name to the petition now.

Thousands of people -- men and women alike -- joined together to protest this bill. And those people are committed to fighting back over the long haul and turning the great state of Texas blue.

But across the country, anti-choice activists are watching us, and any hint of resignation will be an encouragement for them to keep their campaign going into more and more states.

We need everyone on board. Say you're in:
