    There’s a rally in Portland, Oregon tonight at 5 PST, at the PP on MLK: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=165000120217356
    Other PP regions are having rallies too.

    I’ll be there! Hope other Feministe readers will also come.

    As I’m here in the UK I can only offer my unwavering support of my sisters and brothers in the US. Those of us outside your borders are horrified that this is not something out of the Onion, but a real and deadly battle that nobody should be forced to fight.

    Best of luck.

    This is a direct attack on the rights and health of women and trans* people.

    Isn’t it an attack on anyone who is sexually active, or wants to be? Don’t men use birth control and have risks for STDs?

    When are women going to stand up as a group to these (old) men who are still trying to keep women in the 19th century. Write your congress person NOW!

    I actually had a nightmare last night about PP closing. I need to get me to one of these rallies.

    Is there anything going on in Seattle? Because I’d like to be there, and I know a bunch of people who would be right behind me.

    Emerald: Is there anything going on in Seattle?

    There’s a Walk 4 Choice on Saturday.
    These two Facebook pages should have more information:
    http://www.facebook.com/PPvotes

    There’s a lobby in Oly next Monday: http://www.ppaction.org/site/Calendar?id=100283&view=Detail
    I think most of the rallies outside PPs happened yesterday, alas. But there’s Saturday! Someone at the PDX rally told me that they were going to have another rally on Friday afternoon, to counter our small handful of regular protesters. Maybe other places are thinking similarly?
