The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act represents a grave threat to safe, legal and accessible abortion. It is an unprecedented attack on private health coverage for abortion care and a shocking attempt to redefine rape.
This anniversary takes place at a critical time for the women of this country. Speaker Boehner has stated that abortion funding restrictions are of "highest" priority for Republicans. That is why we work together and why we refuse to give up.
Urge your senators to vote for the DOD Authorization Bill, which contains a repeal of the ban on abortion services at military hospitals overseas, in addition to abolishing the discriminatory Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.

Join Charlotte NOW and other NOW members in Charlotte to defend the clinic on July 24 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. We are planning a peaceful demonstration in support of women's fundamental right to the full range of reproductive health services.
Groups like Operation Save America and Operation Rescue use intimidation tactics to scare away women from exercising their right to obtain abortion care. They also aim to drive out of business those clinics that provide the full range of reproductive hea…

With Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) reportedly retiring, women who felt betrayed by his ill-conceived Stupak-Pitts anti-abortion provision are rejoicing. The National Organization for Women Political Action Committee endorsed Charlevoix County Commissioner Connie Saltonstall last month to challenge Stupak for Michigan's 1st District.

The National Organization for Women is incensed that President Barack Obama agreed today to issue an executive order designed to appease a handful of anti-choice Democrats who have held up health care reform in an effort to restrict women's access to abortion. Through this order, the president has announced he will lend the weight of his office and the entire executive branch to the anti-abortion measures included in the Senate bill, which the House is now prepared to pass.
Credible rumors have it that the Democratic leadership in the House and Senate are cutting a deal with Rep. Bart Stupak to insert the Stupak-Pitts Amendment into the health care bill at the last minute.
The National Organization for Women Political Action Committee is proud to announce our endorsement of Connie Saltonstall for Congress, representing Michigan's 1st District. Saltonstall is taking on reproductive rights foe and health care reform obstructer Rep. Bart Stupak in the state's Democratic primary this August.
Today the White House announced that it has set March 18 as the deadline for Congress to pass a final health care reform bill. President Obama has embraced the Senate's version of health care legislation. This bill is no panacea for the nation's broken health care system. It has major flaws that probably cannot be fixed within two weeks. However, the National Organization for Women is not about to give up -- not with women's basic human rights at stake.
