WORD: Women Organized to Resist and Defend

WORD, National Women's Liberation and others took action across the country May 14-19 to demand access to emergency contraception without restrictions or ID requirements and at an affordable cost. Watch and share the short video from these exciting actions now!

There is no scientific or medical reason to restrict women's access to the Morning-After Pill. In April, a federal judge ruled that emergency contraception must be made available to all women over the counter, "without a prescription and without point-of-sale or age restrictions." Instead of complying with that ruling, the Obama administration is appealing it. For the most up-to-date information on the legal case, Tummino v. Hamburg, check out the website of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund.

Organizers with WORD, NWL and other women's rights groups took action to say, "Obama: Hands off the Morning-After Pill!" In San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, New Haven, Washington, DC, New York City, Asheville, Albuquerque, Chicago, Gainesville, Syracuse, San Diego, and other cities across the United States, women took action to demand emergency contraception without restrictions or ID requirements.
