It is time to speak out again– in even larger numbers —and to make politicians face their neighbors, influential movers and shakers, and yes, their family members. We cannot, must not—for U.S. women and the women of the world—lose the right to safe, legal, and accessible abortion or access to birth control.
Women who have had abortions can authorize Ms. Magazine to print their names in a (long, long) list of women who have signed the petition in the October 10th issue. Women who have not had abortions can also sign, in solidarity. The petition will be delivered to the president and members of congress.
Whether or not you've had an abortion, if you're a woman who supports other women's right to safe, legal, and accessible abortion (not to mention birth control and comprehensive sexuality education), please go here to sign the petition. It's a small thing for each of us individually, but together we can make a big impression.
