I stand with Planned Parenthood

3 Mar

I”m sandwiching this in between my regular posts – I’ve been sharing this information and call to action with my FB friends, but didn’t think to put it here until I saw it on Sephanie’s blog. 

 The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding. They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk. It’s time for you and me to stand with Planned Parenthood. Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill — and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it.

    We both signed! Thanks for the link. After the rally in support of workers of Wisconsin finished up last Saturday, Bill walked a few blocks over to where the Planned Parenthood Rally was being held and joined them. He said there was a really large crowd of people of all ages. Oddly, or not, the local Right Wing television news didn’t cover the event at all.

      Hi, y’all –

      I’m not surprised it didn’t get any coverage. You know, if they showed how many people were there, other people might not realize how many people support women having necessary health care…

      Thanks, you two, for signing.

    Jeez, you Americans. What on earth were they thinking?

      I know. It’s gone beyond embarrassing – things are fairly scary down here these days. I may end up having to come join you in Canada…
