Take a stand on the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1999 (S. 1692)

This act will take away more of the choices that women have over their own
bodies. It's easy to tell Washington what you think about the act. And it
doesn't cost a penny.

Just follow the easy steps below:
1) Open this URL with your web browser:
2) In the web page, click on the link "Send a free FAX to your U.S. Senators"
3) In the next web page, fill out the form with your name and address. Click
   on "click" button. The program will determine who your senator is for you;
   you don't even have to know his/her name or address!
4) In the next web page, select which representatives you wish to notify and
   how. Then click on the button "Send message".
5) Repeat steps 1-4. This time in step 2, click on the link "Send a free FAX
   to your U.S. Representatives"

That's it. Eight clicks (or so) and you have notified all your people in DC  
how you feel about the ban.

For more info on S.1692, please read on.
