Protect Women's Health - Call Congress on April 25

This is from the National Women's Law Center:
JOIN US FOR NATIONAL CALL IN DAY: SUPPORT THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ACT!

On April 18, the Supreme Court decided that Congress knows better than a woman and her doctor what’s best for her health and her family. By upholding a federal abortion ban with no protections for a woman’s health, the new Supreme Court majority has declared open season on the Constitutional protections women have relied on for a generation.

You can fight back. The Freedom of Choice Act would preserve women’s health and reproductive rights—as Roe v. Wade intended. The bill recognizes and respects the complicated life decisions women face, and it lets women, not government, make responsible decisions about their health and lives.

The Freedom of Choice Act makes good on Roe v. Wade’s promise to American women—the promise to protect their health and respect their right to decide in this most personal area.

With long-standing protections eroded and the fundamental freedom to make important life decisions in jeopardy, we need the Freedom of Choice Act now more than ever.

Join us for the national call-in day on April 25, the third anniversary of the historic March for Women’s Lives. Don’t let this attack on women’s health and rights go unanswered.

Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Freedom of Choice Act.

CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS APRIL 25 AT: 202-224-3121
