Stand up for Women’s Rights

On Thursday, March 8 2011, in a 51-48 vote, the US Senate rejected an amendment by Senator Blunt to block contraceptive services and discriminate against women.

This amendment would have limited access to contraceptive serves for women based on an employer or insurance plan having “religious or moral objections.” In part because of your messages, the Blunt amendment was defeated in the Senate.

This vote is just the first battle in the fight over contraception. We need to keep the pressure up by continuing to let Senators know where we stand.

Join us today by thanking those who stood with us and letting those against us know why this issue is so very important.
