Rally for Women’s Health!
Tuesday, March 22nd at 11 am
at Englewood Planned Parenthood Health Center
46 Van Brunt St, Englewood
We know it is short notice — but we need you, your friends and family by our side. It’s critical that we demonstrate New Jersey’s strong support for women’s health. We need you to say NO to taking away family planning and birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings and testing for HIV and other diseases from the women in our community. You won’t be able to miss us — we’re traveling in a big pink bus. All you’ll need to do is show up, stand up, and speak the truth with us. Bring your co-workers. Your sisters. Your mom. Your friends. Bring everyone you know who cares about women’s health and the people we serve. And for all who can’t be there in person, join us online — right here! – Michele Jaker, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood, New Jersey
As Michele Jaker said, these rallies are absolutely critical! Rallies have been occurring all over the country in response to the proposed budget cut which would eliminate approximately 320 million dollars in Title X funding. Without Planned Parenthood, hundreds of thousands of people would need to find new health care providers for services such as birth control, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, and more. For many, Planned Parenthood is the only option because of affordability and accessibility. Do not let these basic rights be taken away!
