just got this from narl and wanted to share

It's shocking. Just moments ago, one of the most far-reaching anti-choice bills...putting a woman's life at risk...passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
This bill, H.R.358, would allow hospitals to refuse to provide a woman lifesaving, emergency abortion care...even if she will die without it.
Now, the bill is headed to the U.S. Senate. We must have the resources necessary to fight this bill tooth and nail.
a rose, I am outraged that members of Congress overwhelmingly would pass such an unconscionable, extreme bill. H.R.358 would let women die, telling hospitals that they do not need to provide lifesaving, emergency abortion care.
This is not an isolated vote; it's part of an ongoing agenda that we must fight every day. In fact, the "Let Women Die" bill is the seventh vote on choice taken in the House this year. It is yet another example of just how out of touch anti-choice politicians are with the country's values and priorities.
With only 40 pro-choice votes out of 100 in the Senate, it is critical that we work closely with our pro-choice allies and that we educate mixed-choice lawmakers about this extreme measure.
But we can't do it without your support! We need you and every outraged pro-choice American to help us fight against this attack right now. Please donate today.
Your gift will:
  • Help us target key senators in their home states and in Washington, D.C.
  • Lobby and educate lawmakers to ensure that the Senate doesn't follow the House in using women's lives as a political bargaining chip.
  • Strengthen our ability to gain more media coverage of the War on Women.
  • Help us protect choice at all levels of government.
Thank you for recognizing the urgency of my request by making an emergency online contribution today.
