In the latest affront to women’s health, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed into law a bill that could force health centers in the state to close their doors if they provide abortion care. We may not all see eye-to-eye about abortion, but most people agree that we all need access to health care without politicians getting in the way.

Isn’t it time we are allowed to make our own decisions about our health care?

This bill is just another example of political attacks on women’s health, following on the heels of North Dakota, Arkansas, and other state efforts to block access to abortion care. The trend of attacking women is snowballing out of control, and we need to stop it.

Tell politicians to #stopthebans. Call, email, and tweet your friends and ask them to speak up to their friends. Help stop extremist politicians’ interference in our most personal and private decisions.
