In case you missed it...

Congresswoman Speier stood up in protest of the Pence Amendment and shared her own abortion story.

It was clear from this video that Speier was going to stand up for Planned Parenthood but was not going to share her own abortion story. But, I am so glad she did. If we want Planned Parenthood to survive, women and men need to speak up and tell their own stories about how important Planned Parenthood has been to them in their lives.

And remember, this amendment takes away funding for everything but abortion (thanks Hyde Amendment). So those ever so important cancer screenings, STD screenings, women's health exams and birth control counseling.

Thank you Congresswoman Speier for being so brave and telling your story! I hope more women and men will stand with you and tell theirs.

Now that this has passed in the House, call your Senators and tell them to vote NO on the Pence Amendment!

I stand with Planned Parenthood.

  1. Yay! Exactly what we need. I'd also like to hear from those Repubs' sexually active daughters.


This is not a debate forum -- there are hundreds of other sites for that. This is a safe space for abortion care providers and one that respects the full spectrum of reproductive choices; comments that are not in that spirit will either wind up in the spam filter or languish in the moderation queue.
