I hope you find this information useful. Contacting your senators does not take long -- you can do this during your regular procrastination from homework.
See you at the club fair next Wednesday!

Anti-choice politicians have drawn a line in the sand: they won't be happy until women who now have private insurance coverage for abortion lose it in the new health-care system.1
The stakes for women could not be higher in the health-care debate.
That's why we're meeting with key lawmakers all day today to drive the point home—and making sure that anti-choice legislators don't succeed in banning private insurance companies from covering abortion care in a reformed health-care system.
But we need your phone call right now to back us up.
If you've never called your senator before, it's a LOT easier than you might think. It takes just about one minute.
Here's what to do:
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and activism—I know we can get this done together.
P.S. Your call today, along with our meetings with lawmakers, the letters of tens of thousands of other pro-choice activists, and our earned media strategy will have a big impact on members of Congress—but keeping anti-choice politicians at bay is an ongoing struggle. Donate now to help us continue our advocacy and other efforts on behalf of women's reproductive rights.
