September 29th Is #PinkOut Day
Planned Parenthood organizers are planning to turn the country pink with a national day of protest on Tuesday, September 29th.
A description at istandwithpp.org describes #PinkOut Day as,
... our time to say: Listen to over a million Americans who are sick and tired of the relentless attacks on reproductive health care. Listen to the one in five American women who has received care at a Planned Parenthood health center. It will tell anti-abortion extremists and politicians that we are everywhere and we will not let them use fraud and deception to shut down the health centers so many women rely on for care. It will be women and men nationwide standing together to say: We’re not backing down, not today, not ever.
The events are being hosted by the non-profit organization Planned Parenthood Federation of America, who believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence.
