FMF and Leadership Alliances Oppose Bush's Anti-Choice Cabinet Nominations

George W. Bush's choice for U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, is anti-choice and anti-women's rights. Not only did Ashcroft staunchly oppose the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), but as Missouri's Attorney General he filed suit against the National Organization for Women (NOW) in 1979, charging NOW with anti-trust violations and attempting to break the ERA convention boycott of unratified states.

Senate hearings on Bush's anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-gay, anti-affirmative action nominees begin TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2001!
As part of their Roe anniversary activism, the LEADERSHIP ALLIANCE AT THE U OF CHICAGO is currently organizing a major petition drive against the nomination of John Ashcroft for Attorney General. To take action and learn more about Bush's anti-choice anti-woman nominations, visit www.feminist.org/appointmentwatch/.
