As most of you know I work at Planned Parenthood and am very much for the cause that I am associated with. Are funding was cut by 85% and was given to crisis pregnancy centers to punish us because just ONE of the services we provide are abortions. They money given to them was barely put to use. " They've served 11 woman. Basically, in the same time period, we could've served over 8,000. I think it is crystal clear what the choice should be for the legislature." -Sarah Wheat, Planned Parenthood-So....march for me or your sister or aunt or your girlfriend or your grandmother even! Say yes to reproductive health care for women at cost they can afford!!!!

What is Planned ParenthoodÂ’s Lobby Day?

Lobby Day, on Wednesday, February 28th, brings together hundreds of pro-choice volunteers from all over Texas. You will meet your legislators (or members of their staff) face-to-face at the Capitol, and share Planned ParenthoodÂ’s legislative priorities with them. This is a day when Planned Parenthood supporters tell our elected officials about the vital health care services that our clinics provide, as well as other issues important to Texas families.

What if I have never participated in a lobby day?

No background or experience is required! The only requirements are that you (1) attend one of the training sessions listed below; (2) participate all day in Lobby Day on February 28th; and (3) strongly support funding for family planning, and support a Prevention First bill that would help reduce unintended pregnancies.

Our State Senator is Kirk Watson, who is definitely in our corner. I'll try and be there if I can. Most of the anti-choice folks seem to me to be misogynistic.

Thank you for having the courage to speak up abt this.

Rape survivor jailed, denied emergency contraception. Act Now.

Over the past 72 hours, a 21-year-old woman in Florida was raped, jailed on an outstanding warrant (for a 2003 juvenile arrest), and blocked from taking emergency contraception because a jail worker had "religious objections" to the medication. This is an absolute outrage.

According to the St. Petersburg Times

"A doctor had given her Plan B, the so-called 'morning-after pill' approved by the FDA, to prevent pregnancy. But Moore [her attorney] said a medical supervisor at the jail refused to let her take the second of the two pills on Sunday."

The woman was not allowed to take the second pill until Monday afternoon. For emergency contraception to work, the second pill must be taken within 12 hours. This woman was refused for 36. Only after media inquiries did the jail allow the woman to take the second pill. After surviving assault and rape, this woman was denied access to the care she needed and deserved. This is clear violation of a woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

A jail worker's personal, religious beliefs stopped this woman from making her own health care decisions. Speak out — stand up for this woman. Contact the office of Governor Charlie Crist and tell him that this is outrageous and will not be tolerated.
