Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada Membership

This is a fundraising appeal. PLEASE join ARCC! There's lots of good reasons why. First, it's damn cheap! - only $20 for a year. That includes our newsletter "The Activist/L'Activiste", issued 3 times a year, as well as your choice of private listservs to keep up to date on news related to reproductive rights in Canada.

Most of all, your membership helps to support our work ensuring abortion access and rights for Canadian women. The Conservative government and the anti-choice movement in Canada are both very active in trying to take away those rights, so our work is cut out for us - and we really need your ongoing support. And we're not shirkers: check out this update on ARCC news and activities over the last year and a half:; We hope you'll agree that our work deserves your support!

All of ARCC's revenue comes from private donations and membership fees - we receive NO funding from external sources. In addition, we are the only national POLITICAL pro-choice group in Canada - we're NOT a charity - which means our lobbying and political work is essential to the continued protection of abortion rights in Canada - even while fundraising is difficult because we cannot apply for most grants or provide tax receipts (sorry!)

So we hope you can join us in the ongoing struggle. Please visit our website for info on how to join:; (and for more info, email info@arcc-;
