Slinkerwink of FDL Action and DailyKos is hosting a phone bank in Austin this afternoon to stand up for choice in the health care bill. She’s a fellow Austinite, so I paid her a visit.
I’m running this phonebanking event because I want to make sure that the Stupak language isn’t in the final Senate bill. Our reproductive rights shouldn’t be some football for the Democrats in Congress to play with for the votes of conservative Democrats. People can help stop this disturbing trend of trading away Democratic principles by joining in with our phonebanking events at FDL.
The information for the Austin phone bank is here.
They’ll be working the phones here until 5:00PM central, so there’s plenty of time to come down and help us fight for choice.
