A Democratic group has accused Republicans of embracing a "revolting anti-choice agenda" in a fundraising drive marking the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The message from the Democratic Women's Health Rapid Response Fund asks supporters for donations to "show Boehner that there are consequences for Republicans' unrelenting war against women."

"Since we alerted you to Republicans' revolting anti-choice agenda, your response has been stunning! Grass-roots Democrats are standing up all across the country and declaring that they've had ENOUGH," the fundraising message said, according to the text obtained by the website Weasel Zippers.

"If we can hit 5,000 donations to our Women's Health Rapid Response Fund on today's historic anniversary of Roe v. Wade, that would be a HUGE blow to Boehner and the Republicans' anti-woman agenda," the letter continues.

The letter, which the website says was issued by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in December, also says that if a donor makes a contribution of $3 or more on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, the group will match the donation dollar-for-dollar.

"We will not stand silent while Republicans bring a bill to the House floor that could force rape survivors to face 'abortion audits,'" it says, according to Weasel Zippers. "Let's show Boehner that there are consequences for Republicans' unrelenting war on women."
