This is a dangerous time for women’s health. The last year has seen unprecedented attacks on women’s access to care and on the fundamental right of every woman to make her own medical decisions — not just in Washington, but in states around the country.
Just last year, 36 states enacted a record 135 provisions limiting access to reproductive health care.
We need to stand up today and show our broad strength and support for women’s health around the country. Please join the National Online March today.
Despite the setbacks, 2011 also proved that we can achieve tremendous victories when we stand together and speak with one voice. Not only did we secure no-cost birth control for women, but we’re seeing some of the effects of the Affordable Care Act take hold. We ended the discriminatory practice of charging women more than men for health insurance, and soon tens of millions of women will have access to additional coverage.
That’s why it’s so important that we take a stand and show our support for the full range of women’s health care. All of our marchers’ messages will be packaged and delivered directly to members of Congress, governors and state legislators so they know we’re watching.
I hope you’ll pick up a virtual sign and march with me today!
