Statement by NOW President Terry O’Neill:
The vast majority of people in this country support women’s access to a full range of reproductive health care, including abortion and birth control, without interference by politicians.
And yet, right-wing legislators continue to wage a war on women by protecting special interests and attacking our constitutional right to vote.
It’s time to vote these anti-woman conservatives out of office! To do that, it’s essential that we restore the Voting Rights Act to get rid of voter suppression laws, and undo the Citizens United case that opened the floodgates of corporate campaign funding.
We will not be able to enact positive, feminist change if extremist billionaires like the Koch brothers continue to buy control of our government. That’s why we are taking the first step to join our friends in the pro-democracy movement and demand every voice is heard and every vote is counted.
