Good news in the Choice wars!

I received and email from NARAL today that a bill will be introduced in Congress called the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). Please, please, please visit NARAL online and tell your congressperson today that you want to keep choice available to women forever. The bill was introduced by Sen Barbara Boxer and Rep. Jerrold Nadler.

As you know, the stats are staggering:

87 percent of counties in the U.S. have no abortion provider.
South Dakota has passed an abortion ban - and 12 other states have considered passing bans of their own this legislative session.

The Supreme Court will soon decide on the Bush administration's Federal Abortion Ban, which could ban abortion as early as 12 weeks and has no exception to protect women's health.

Millions of women could be denied access to abortion care altogether if the Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade.

WE have to act now because this is no longer a theoretical possibility that we will lose our right to choose. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.
