Reproductive freedom advocates rally today (Video)

Women’s health advocates will be rallying at the General Assembly today to battle another round of attacks on reproductive health care. The message to lawmakers: “you don’t walk in every woman’s shoes.”  Here are the details:

Who: Women’s health advocates, ACLU, Ipas, Lillian’s List, NARAL Pro-Choice NC, NC Now, NC Women Matter, NC Women United, Planned Parenthood Health Systems and Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina
What: “Not in Her Shoes Rally”
Where: Halifax Mall, 300 North Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC
When: March 20, 2013, Noon-1:00 pm

On the heels of the NC Senate’s reintroduction of an amended version of the so-called “Woman’s Right to Know” bill —passed in 2011 and enjoined by Federal District Court—women (and men) will gather to tell politicians they should stay the heck out of a woman’s personal health decisions because they do not “walk in every woman’s shoes.” Shoes gathered for the event as a symbol will be distributed to a local women’s organization.

This video spells out the “not in her shoes” message simply and succinctly.
