Take it from me
As a member of the House Budget Committee, I've seen firsthand just how extreme Paul Ryan is, so I'm not going to mince words: Paul Ryan in the White House would be a nightmare.
Over the last two years, we've seen an unprecedented number of attacks on a woman's right to make her own health care decisions -- and Congressman Ryan has been at the forefront of all of them.
He wants to end Medicare as we know it. He co-sponsored a radical "personhood" bill that could have banned the birth control pill, in vitro fertilization, and all abortions -- even in cases of rape or incest. What's more? He wants to allow states to criminally prosecute women who choose to have abortions and the doctors who perform them.
We cannot afford to let this man be a heartbeat away from the presidency. It's up to us to do everything we can to give Democrats the resources to defeat the Romney-Ryan campaign and Republicans across the board in November.
Donate $3 or whatever you can today to stand up for the right of women to make their own decisions -- and to keep Paul Ryan and other Republicans from taking that right away:

A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution.
