"Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill it teaches the whole people by its example.
Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a law breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself."

Defend Abortion Rights at Dr. Carhart's Clinic August 28-29
Lies, intimidation and threats further a climate of violence and murderous terrorism against women's fundamental reproductive rights -- and women need you to join NOW's grassroots activists in Nebraska. Defend Dr. Carhart's clinic with NOW President Terry O'Neill on August 28 and 29.

Kansas NOW and Nebraska NOW are organizing a peaceful clinic defense to counter a demonstration by Operation Rescue. Roll up the map, start packing up your car and get details for how you can help at the Kansas NOW website.

Send Your Thanks to Dr. Carhart
Less than three months after the cold-blooded murder of Dr. George Tiller in his own church, violent anti-abortion extremists have intensified focus on Dr. LeRoy Carhart, an abortion provider and ardent defender of women's fundamental right to the full range of reproductive health services.

Dr. Carhart has continuously stood up for women. We must not only stand up for him, but also thank him for his continued commitment to all women, including women whose lives depend on having a late-term abortion. Send your thanks to Dr. Carhart now.

Sign NOW's Pledge for Reproductive Freedom
If you haven't done so already, take a moment to sign NOW's Pledge for Reproductive Freedom. As activists, we must redouble our efforts to maintain safe and legal access to abortion and birth control.

Signing the pledge affirms you will not let women be intimidated by a right-wing movement perpetuating and condoning terrorism against women's clinics and health care professionals across the country. Sign NOW's Pledge for Reproductive Freedom.
