Spreading the word

Yesterday there was an article in the Washington Post about the March, and it mentioned the Action Center and gave our address--and it brought about 25 pro-choice activists to our door! People signed up to march, took stickers and flyers, and bought our cool pro-choice t-shirts. One woman who stopped by saw that we were assembling our signs and just took her coat off and got right to work!

Not only did this make for a very exciting, inspiring day at the Action Center, it was also a great reminder of how important it is to spread the word about the March. You might not be able to reach quite as many people as the Washington Post, but if you take five minutes out of your day to email five (or ten or twenty...) friends about the March, that's five more people to help build our pro-choice million. So tell your friends and neighbors and coworkers and relatives to march, and if you're in the DC area, bring them on in to the Action Center--we'll put you to work assembling signs and get you outfitted with all the gear you need to be a visible and fashionable pro-choice activist on the 25th and beyond.

We're at 1119 F Street, right across from Metro Center. And if you're not in DC yet (because we know you will be on the 25th!) you can get your gear at http://store.yahoo.com/prochoiceamerica/procgifandge.html

P.S. More encouraging news: the Nebraska trial on the Federal Abortion Ban concluded on a bad note for the government. Two of their own witnesses admitted that the ban would outlaw a range of safe and medically necessary procedures and that the ban, if enforced, would thus force doctors to violate the standard of care--AND that the civil penalties it provides against doctors would make it difficult to recruit new ob-gyns. The New York and California trials are expected to conclude next week. Regardless of the outcome, each of the three cases is likely to be appealed and could go all the way to the Supreme Court--reminding us once again how important the court is and how important it is to MARCH IN SUPPORT OF OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS!
