As the General Assembly gives approval today to legislation based in part on phony-baloney allegations against Planned Parenthood, advocates for women’s health and reproductive freedom will rally at the General Assembly tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. as part of the national “I stand with Planned Parenthood” movement.
This is from local organizers:
“Here’s what’s going on in North Carolina.
Just last week, NC lawmakers attacked sex education although it’s proven to be effective – teen pregnancy rates are steadily dropping.
Our students need more than that and to let our legislators know, we are holding a People’s Assembly, complete with a sex-ed teach in on Tuesday, September 29.
We’re thinking, if they don’t support sex education, we’ll bring it to them!
Let’s show our legislators that our students deserve to learn what’s healthy.
So wear Pink, come to the legislative building and show our lawmakers that we are not backing down!”
