We need to speak loudly and let our voices be heard Let our US Congressman, Vern Buchanan, know that we care about women’s choice and support our right to make our own decisions about our bodies. We need him to vote for legislation to PROTECT women’s right to terminate a pregnancy, not oppose it. This is a National ACTION and we can be a part of it locally!
Bring your own homemade signs to wave.
Women's Bodies, Women's Choice
Protect Safe, Legal Abortion
Bans Off our Bodies
(coat hanger drawing) NEVER AGAIN!(or your own pro-choice slogan)
If you can’t join us on Oct 2nd, please contact Rep. Buchanan – (202) 225-5015 https://buchanan.house.gov/contact - and let him know that you support a woman’s right to choose and you oppose the draconian measures like those imposed recently by Texas which even now are being contemplated in Florida and in Manatee County.
We don’t need vigilantes intimidating women who make the hard choice to end a pregnancy.
We don’t need an arbitrary 6-week restriction when most of us don’t even know we are pregnant.
We don’t need government overriding our personal choices in these matters.
Please stand with us!
