Halt the Assault

Family planning clinics are being forced to close, and leading politicians are warning about the "dangers" of contraception. Rush Limbaugh calls a Georgetown University student a "slut" and a "prostitute" because she believes that insurance companies should be required to cover birth control. State legislatures are passing laws designed to harass women who have chosen to terminate a pregnancy. Presidential aspirants want to eliminate Title X, the federal program that provides low-income women with access to contraceptives and screenings for breast and cervical cancer. And now South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley says that women don't care about contraception.

Isn't it time...

to halt the assault on contraception and reproductive health?

Isn't it time...

for men to join women in this fight?

If you're a woman, won't you encourage the women and men in your life to speak out?
If you're a man, won't you pledge to speak out in support of reproductive health and rights?

Everyone, regardless of their gender, should care about reproductive and health rights.

I pledge to encourage my friends —women and men— to speak out against efforts to restrict access to contraceptives and family planning clinics.
