Greetings from Mar Vista, in not-so-sunny Southern California! This afternoon we’re phone banking from the home of Kate Anderson, who’s a candidate for my assembly district in California,
We need to do everything we can to get the Stupak amendment out of the health care bill. I’m hosting a phone bank because it is one of the most effective tools we have to make our voices heard. Women, together, need to stand up for our right to choose.
Kate isn’t the only powerful woman candidate here who does more than talk the talk when it comes to defending a woman’s right to chose. We also have Marcy Winograd, who’s running against Jane Harman in CA-36.
The Stupak amendment would set women back decades, sending them into back alleys, endangering many lives by denying health care coverage for abortion. We women must not surrender control over our own bodies nor make ourselves sacrificial lambs in the fight over health insurance reform. I ask women across the country to speak up before it’s too late, before the anti-choice lobbyists subvert a hard-fought struggle for a woman’s right to choose.
Please join these powerful women this weekend to help defeat the Stupak amendment.
We have phone banks coming up this week in New York City, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana and California.
