Call to Protect Clinics

Thursday Jul 14th, 2005 3:17 PM
<strong>Please read the update</strong> at http://www.indybay.org/news/2005/07/1754669.php as the location and nature of the 7/23 protest have changed.

The “Crusade for Life” plans to disrupt our community by harassing women at health clinics from July 15-27. We need your help to defend our clinics and to send the message that the Bay Area is pro-choice and stands up for reproductive rights!
The Bay Area is being targeted by Anti-Choice groups, such as Operation Rescue, precisely because we have a long standing tradition of honoring and protecting a woman's right to reproductive self determination. Please come out to defend our clinics and show our community. Not two weeks ago, a reproductive clinic in Florida was damaged by arson. We can't allow these attacks to continue. See the flyer below for dates/times ways to continue to protect women's health, human and civil rights.
GET INVOLVED.
