Today, as we celebrate the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, women’s reproductive freedom and health are still under attack.
The Tea Party Congress has moved aggressively to shut down women's access to reproductive health care and deny women the basic right to choose by targeting their health insurance and key healthcare providers, most notably, Planned Parenthood. In the states, a movement is afoot to make abortions illegal by conferring the status of “personhood” on embryos, and various state legislatures have taken up bills that would erect insurmountable barriers to women exercising their right to choose.
Young People For Action is proud to be partnering with the Silver Ribbon Campaign and an extremely broad coalition of organizations to promote the Virtual March celebrating Trust Women Week.
It is imperative that we begin 2012 with a powerful event that builds solidarity and momentum for reproductive health, rights and justice.
Join the Virtual March now and send your views to Congress and other elected officials where key decisions are pending about reproductive health, rights and justice.
You'll see your actions on an online map where you can also see who else is joining you, nearby and nationwide.
Choose from messages like:
- “I trust women and I vote”
- “Reproductive rights are human rights”
- “We are the 99%. Fix the economy, and stop the war on women”
- And more.
Join the march now and then help spread the word!

Thank you for standing up for women’s rights and against right-wing attacks on reproductive freedom.
