2011 has been a big year for us here at the DC Abortion Fund. And with the New Year almost here, we’re planning – you might say, even resolving – to make 2012 an even bigger success!
Last year, over 2,000 women and girls called DCAF for help. During this season of resolutions, I need you to make one more: help us answer those calls. Make a pro-choice New Year’s resolution – give an end-of-year, tax-deductible gift to support abortion access today!
A few weeks ago, I wrote to tell you that the deplorable DC Abortion Ban was upheld in both Houses of Congress, undermining the District’s autonomy and the rights of women and girls.
But that’s not all. This year, the Virginia legislature passed Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers legislation, which may force clinics to close their doors. In Maryland, we’re continuing to do our best to make choice a reality – even as the addition of Dr. LeRoy Carhart’s courageous practice nearby draws more women to our area. With demand increasing, more women are turning to us, and now we are turning to you.
DCAF changes lives each and every day. But we need all of our strength for the road ahead. In an increasingly volatile climate, we are determined to see to it that the women of DC, Maryland, and Virginia are not left behind.
Imagine your phone ringing 2,000 times. Ours does. With your help, we’ll continue to be there for women that need us in the coming year.
Together, let’s make a pro-choice New Year’s revolution for our community. Time is ticking – can I count on your support?
