By now, you’ve inevitably heard all about the U.S. House’s vote to block all funding to Planned Parenthood. This is a major threat to reproductive health, and would result in devastating cuts that would limit access to all kinds of care from pap smears to STD tests to cancer screenings to birth control. This is a direct attack on the rights and health of women and trans* people.
On Saturday, February 26th, Planned Parenthood NYC is holding a Rally for Women’s Health in Manhattan from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. More information is available at their Facebook page.
Immediately prior to that event (and partnering with the Planned Parenthood rally) is a Walk for Choice event. The Walk for Choice is taking place in a slew of cities all around the country, with a couple even outside the U.S., and you can find a complete listing of events here.
Please feel free to leave additional information about other events related to choice and the recent attacks on Planned Parenthood in the comments.
