I am a second year grad student in a public health program here in New York City, so when I heard last Saturday that Congress is trying to cut federal funding that was previously allocated to Planned Parenthood for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other vital health care, I was very fired up. This news made me feel like STANDING UP for the important cause of continued access to reproductive health care for American women, men, and teens, and, thanks to a rally that is taking place this very Saturday afternoon in NYC, I will do exactly that!
If you are interested in letting Congress know that you stand with Planned Parenthood on this issue, you can sign their open letter to Congress. If you live in or around the New York City area and would like to attend the rally, you can RSVP for the event here. Planned Parenthood, I can’t wait to stand up with you this Saturday! YEAH!!
