By now you've probably heard all the buzz about Women are Watching. You probably have already taken the Pledge and have been watching politicians just as intently as we have, and we thank you for that. We are talking to those of you out there who haven't taken the pledge yet. We need your help!
For too long, anti-choice politicians have worked furiously to undermine women's health and destroy organizations like ours that protect women's access to reproductive care. They've gotten away with outrageous attacks and flat-out lies in the hopes that nobody will call them out. And they've used every bit of power they've gained to turn back the clock on women's health.
It is critical that women know where political candidates stand on women's health care issues. Women are Watching is a nation-wide campaign aimed at educating, engaging, and empowering supporters to take action, and ultimately to vote to protect women's health and expand care for all women in America.
We encourage supporters to share information with their friends, family and colleagues. The more women’s health supporters know about the issues and the threats being made to their health and rights, the more they will be motivated to get involved in the upcoming elections.
After one of most aggressive legislative assaults on women’s health last year, it’s up to us to take action to ensure that protecting women’s health is a priority in 2012.
In 2012 things are going to be different, politicians need to know that we’re watching and we will hold them accountable on women’s health. Please visit the Women are Watching website (www.womenarewatching.org) for more information about who we are "Watching," the "States at Risk," "Champs" and "Chumps" and other great resources so you can stay informed about the political climate.
It’s time to Stand Up and Speak Out. Let candidates for office know that we hear what they are saying, we see what they are doing, and we’re WATCHING.
