Invitation from Six Rivers Planned Parenthood

Join Humboldt County Clergy for Choice and Six Rivers Planned Parenthood to show your support for Planned Parenthood at a rally in front of the Eureka Courthouse next Wednesday evening!

We’ve been so inspired by your incredible response to our Pledge-a-Picket campaign and all of your supportive comments on our facebook page regarding the recent 40 Days of Life protest. This rally is an opportunity to show the community that Humboldt County cares about reproductive rights and social justice.

Stand up for access to high quality reproductive health care for ALL including contraception, STD testing & treatment and cancer screenings!

Stand up to support the 1 in 3 women who will have an abortion in her lifetime and show that you trust in her ability to make her own decisions!

To pledge: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/srpp/pledge-picketer-campaign-40956.htm

Stand up for medically accurate sex education in local schools so that our youth have the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves and make educated decisions about their sexuality!

Stand with Planned Parenthood! We’ll provide some signs but feel free to make your own. Thank you for your support and we’ll see you there!

    No one ever wants an abortion. The educational aspects of Planned Parenthood are very important. I would like to remind parents and our faith based neighbors that lack of education and abstinence only programs do not prove effective. ” After years of delay in its release, a federally supported evaluation of abstinence-only-until-marriage programs funded under the 1996 federal welfare reform law has proven the programs ineffective in changing teens’ sexual behavior. The report, released on April 13, 2007 and conducted by Mathematica Policy Research Inc. on behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, found no evidence that abstinence-only-until-marriage programs increased rates of sexual abstinence. In addition, students in the abstinence-only-until-marriage programs had a similar number of sexual partners as their peers not in the programs, as well as a similar age of first sex.” http://www.siecus.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Feature.showFeature&featureid=955&pageid=483&parentid=478

    “Dorothy H. Brush, Planned Parenthood activist, whose wealth came from Charles Francis Brush (1849–1929), who invented the arc lamp for street lights and founded the Brush Electric Company. Draper’s version of Planned Parenthood was to pass the Involuntary Sterilization laws in 15 different U.S. States.

    Margaret Sanger, also from Planned Parenthood, who used the wealth of one of one of her husbands, Noah Slee, to promote her work. Slee made his fortune from the familiar household product, 3-In-One Oil.”

    Of course, the number of abortions increased with abstinence only sex education and lack of contraceptive services. Who woulda thunk it?

    My spouse has volunteered for Planned Parenthood. They do a good deal of family planning for parents-to-be. Don’t let the nutjobs convince you that PP is all about abortions.

    A little education about available contraception and there may not have to be a next time. Please Susan, consider your options before you make such a heartbreaking donation.

    Well not all, 50% of the population don’t need their services.

    This is rich. A florida tea tard troll *demanding* answers from a Humboldt blogger!

    Note to wordpress blog owners. If a tick like Just Watchin ever attaches itself to your blog it is easy to get rid of him. Just start marking all of his comments as *spam* and he will soon be relegated to askimet hell, never to be seen again.
