today's action President Obama: Help Saves Women's Lives Around the World

The Helms Amendment bars the use of U.S. foreign assistance to provide abortion as a method of family planning.

To this day, the law as been interpreted to mean that even women in the most desperate of circumstances are denied safe abortions. As a result, some 47,000 women die each year in developing countries from complications from unsafe abortions.

For today's Daily Action, stop the needless suffering and tell President Obama to make clear that U.S. funded health clinics around the world can provide safe abortions to women who need it most.
