We need you to take action to stop this dangerous bill!

Last week an unlicensed practitioner performing abortions in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Philadelphia was arrested and charged with the murder of seven infants and one woman who died in his custody.

Statement of Stephanie Poggi, Executive Director of the National Network of Abortion Funds
Yesterday, January 20th, Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced an outrageous bill that he’s calling “The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.”
No doubt Rep. Smith is convinced that putting the words “taxpayer” and “abortion” together will get him all the support he needs. But what would the bill really do?

Thank you so much to everyone who donated and spread the word about our year-end matching donation!
To the generous donor and long-time friend to the Network who presented a matching gift of $30,000, to everyone who blogged, tweeted, and spread the word, and to all who stretched their budgets at the end of the year to help ensure that women like Leila have the funds to get the abortion they need: THANK YOU. With your help, we raised over $60,000!

What would you do if $100 was standing between you and the abortion you needed?
By the time Leila made it to her appointment, she had already spent a few terrified weeks scraping together the money: she had siphoned off the grocery and rent money, borrowed everything she could from her friends, sold her television on Craigslist.

Does the very prospect of dressing up for another fancy fundraiser wear you out?
Would you just as soon don a snuggie, pop a batch of cookies in the oven, and curl up on the couch with a good book?

Thank you to RH Reality Check for putting together one of the best end-of-year lists out there--it's not a contest, but an arena for some well-deserved recognition and love for many of 2010's most passionate and righteous activists who work hard every day to create real change and "promote sexual and reproductive justice, environmental justice, women's human rights and the rights of LGBT persons."

As our website excitedly proclaims, a generous donor and long-time friend to the National Network of Abortion Funds has agreed to match your gift dollar for dollar until December 31st.
This is an incredible opportunity to have double the impact with your generous gift. But, I also want to take a moment to tell you a bit more about what your gift really means to thousands of women across the country.
