March with NAPW for Science & Reproductive Justice
On Saturday, April 22, 2017 activists around the country will lace up their sneakers and take to the streets to demonstrate their support for science. National Advocates for Pregnant Women will be there because we cannot protect maternal and reproductive health or achieve reproductive justice without a commitment to science and evidence-based public health policies.
Restrictions on abortion, the punishment of pregnant women and new mothers, and over-medicalized childbirth are all based on non-science. As our commentary posted on Rewire today and pasted below explains: We must demand that laws and policies affecting people with the capacity for pregnancy be based on science -- not myths, misinformation and prejudice.
NAPW knows that activists and allies live and fight in every part of this country including the so-called red states. Unfortunately, larger, mainstream organizations too often treat people in “red” states as too conservative to bother with – instead of encouraging and supporting activism in these parts of the country.
In addition to supporting NAPW here are three more things you can do:
1) Support the Take Root: Red State Perspectives on Reproductive Justice Conference in Norman, Oklahoma. Last year 600 people from Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee and the region attended. Take Root, sponsored by University of Oklahoma’s Women and Gender Studies Program, is taking place this year on Feb 24-25, 2017. Please join us there and give to Take Root because everyone deserves reproductive justice, no matter where they hang their hat at night. http://take-root.org/continued »
