Stand Up for Women's Health in D.C. Tomorrow!

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 6:02pm

It's come down to this: A final showdown in Congress to determine the future of women's health in our country.

Reproductive rights opponents in Congress will stop at nothing — including shutting down the government as soon as Friday — to forward their own narrow social agenda. Their goal? To end all federal funding to Planned Parenthood and put excessive and undue roadblocks in the way of women trying to obtain abortion care and protect their health and that of their families.

Angry yet?

If you are, join the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America and thousands more as we descend upon Washington, D.C., to defend women's health as part of a National Lobby Day to make sure Congress protects women.

If you'd like to join the ACLU contingent, we're meeting up at 11 a.m. at the National Mall on the southeast corner of Madison Drive NW and 4th Street NW, in front of the east wing of the National Gallery. Go to www.aclu.org/april7 for all the details.

We're sending a strong, loud message to Congress to protect women and their families and reject any bill that defunds Planned Parenthood, puts new restrictions on abortion access, and endangers women's health.

If you can't join us in person, support the rally online by tweeting your message using the #rally4health hashtag. And tell your members of Congress to protect women and their families and reject any bill that defunds Planned Parenthood, puts new restrictions on abortion access, and endangers women's health.
