Today's Action Alert

From Catholics for Choice:
Catholics for Choice is issuing the Catholics for Choice Matching Gift Challenge to support the women of DC and assist the DC Abortion Fund (DCAF) in its critical work. Women in the District of Columbia need your help—and we’re asking you to give now as generously as you can. By participating in this challenge, your gift will mean twice as much.

As Catholics, we are called upon to speak up and show our compassion for the poor. Our faith guides our commitment to social justice, including reproductive justice. CFC condemns using the reproductive health of low-income women in Washington, DC, as a bargaining chip to reach a budget agreement. When Congress chose to prohibit the DC government from distributing its own local funds to pay for poor women’s abortions it made an unconscionable decision.
You can donate here, but hurry, as there's only one day left of the gift-matching project.
