As banners celebrating a woman's right to choose fly high on Market Street, San Francisco gears up for the
West Coast Rally for Reproductive Justice. A pro-active, positive, pro-choice event for everyone who believes women have the inherent right to make our own medical decisions. (Kind of a no brainer, huh?)

Why now? Last year, the federal government passed laws allowing emergency room doctors to refuse to provide life saving abortions, nearly shut down Planned Parenthood & made attacking women's lives a priority. Did you send an email on behalf of women's health? Sign a petition to keep Planned Parenthood's breast cancer screenings free for uninsured women? This event is for everyone who supports women's autonomy, women's health & sees these attacks as a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money. You have a voice. Use it.
