Help Stop the Attacks on Dr. George Tiller and His Clinic

We [at FMF] write to you today with news of the latest announced attacks against Dr. George Tiller and an opportunity to help this unique provider of safe and legal abortion to women in desperate need nationwide.

Misjudging Women


In response to the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, Congress has re-introduced the Freedom of Choice Act, or FOCA.
