Check out BACORR:
BACORR started in 1988 to accomplish two things: We defended Bay Area clinics against the harassment and violence of militant anti-choice individuals and organizations (exemplified by Operation “Rescue” ) and we built a diverse movement of reproductive rights activists that formed a strong community base of support for reproductive rights and family planning clinics, and their mission of serving working class and economically disadvantaged women. Clinics that would have shut their doors stayed open because of BACORR’s strategic and impassioned organizing.
Our demands are based on one fundamental belief:
Women have the both right and responsibility to choose to reproduce or not, under circumstances controlled and guided solely by the urgings of their spirit and their reason.
A multi –issue coalition made up of everyone who wants to finish the work started by women and men who fought to rescue our reproductive abilities from the hands of those least equipped to deal with them. BACORR welcomes both individuals and groups, regardless of their economic, political, religious backgrounds and traditions. Only one thing is needed to work with BACORR: a passionate belief that there is more work to be done.
BACORR is Gearing up for:
