Tell the FDA to just say "NO!" to the Right-wing attacks on Mifepristone

Women's access to Mifepristone (RU-486) and safe alternatives to surgical abortions is under attack. Right-wing anti-choice groups have asked the FDA to halt sales of Mifepristone for further health reviews, in spite of years of successful testing in Europe. We need your help to ensure that the FDA hears a strong response against these politically-motivated attacks!

We need your help to spread the word about this alert. Please forward this message to any friends, family, colleagues, bulletin boards, listservs, or web pages that care about reproductive choice!

Women's access to Mifepristone (RU-486) and safe alternatives to surgical abortions is under attack. Right-wing anti-choice groups have asked the FDA to halt sales of Mifepristone for further health reviews, in spite of years of successful testing in Europe.

Vote.com recently put up a vote for people to send comments to the FDA on this issue. We need your help to safeguard women's reproductive choice from Right-wing attacks.

To make your vote count, log on to: http://www.vote.com/vote/49007489/index.phtml?cat=4075633

By voting "NO!" you can tell the FDA not t give in on a ban based on only pro-life politics. The FDA will receive your vote as a comment and the total number of people who voted for and against will be tallied on the Vote.com website.

Early in the vote the pro-choice position was leading, but now the Right has mobilized enough to lead 55%-45%. Pro-choice people are the majority; we just have to tap into the support that we already have in order to turn this vote around. With your help and help from the people you know, we can easily make up the difference. Be sure to forward this alert to others you know who care about reproductive choice.
