Um, I’m there! Play bingo and hang with pro-choicers, all in favor of Planned Parenthood’s Birth Control Matters campaign, “an effort to make prescription birth control available without co-pays, to enable women to choose the method that works best for them, and reduce the number of unintended pregnancies.” Reproductive Rights are my favorite!
If any of you lovely tumblr followers want to go, send me a message! I’d love to meet some you amazing feminists IRL!
Sign the petition in support of making birth control available without co-pays.
“When politics trumps medicine, real women suffer.”
An amazing video from the NYC Stand With Planned Parenthood rally on February 26th. The video features excerpts from speeches by Kathleen Turner, Anthony Weiner, Chuck Schumer, Kathleen Hanna, Yvetta Clark, Eliot Engel, and Dr. Sarah Miller.
Want to Stand With Planned Parenthood? (It takes about a whole minute.)
-1 in 5 Women use Planned Parenthood
-It is estimated that if funding to Planned Parenthood is cut, it will lead to 400,000 More Abortions each year because women will lose access to affordable contraception.
-Planned Parenthood saves lives by providing low cost breast exams and cervical exams. WOMEN WILL DIE IF FUNDING IS CUT.
-Title X also seeks to cut funding for Women Infant Children (WIC) which serves 9.6 million low-income women, young mothers, and infants, each year by providing nutritional support.
The current Republican Congress does not care about women or children. This is an assault on women and human rights, and WE WILL NOT TAKE IT!!!
DEMOCRACY IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!
Enter your zip code and SEND A LETTER TO YOUR SENATOR! It takes less than a minute to do the right thing.
Sign the petition: I Stand With Planned Parenthood.
UPDATE: The Mountain Goats and Kathleen Hanna are going to be at the rally! I know it’s Saturday morning, and you’ve got a hangover, brunch, in my case, a yoga class (sometimes I try do do all three!). But, this is so much bigger than any one of us. Always wish you lived in the late 60s so you got to stand up for things and feel a part of something? Try the war on reproductive rights happening today!
THE WAR ON WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS MUST BE STOPPED!
Abortions make up 3% of the services provided during a year at Planned Parenthood. AND FEDERAL MONEY IS NOT USED TO FUND ABORTION PROCEDURES.
Planned Parenthood provides affordable pelvic and breast exams, preventive procedures which can save lives and are absolutely necessary for women’s health. They sell affordable birth control and provide non-judgemental care, especially to the GLBTQ community. They help numerous scared young women with no where else to go and no one to talk to, whether they need birth control, medical help after a rape, or yes, an abortion.
I am not usually a fan of violent language, but GET YOUR EFFING LAWS OFF MY BODY!
