Fight the abortion ban in the Domincan Republic

You may or may not have heard that the Domincan Republic approved a constitutional amendment to ban all abortions, even in cases of rape, incest, or for the health of the mother, which is preposterous. "Right to life" from conception to birth; after that, SCREW YOU. Thank you, Catholic Church!

However, there is still hope: the article must go through a second reading, and be discussed again. We must speak up for these women. Write your country's Dominican Embassy today and tell them to oppose Article 30!

For contact info and a sample letter, read this post on Akimbo or this one on Feministe.
