Raise your voice for Choice

This just in from Planned Parenthood:
You and everyone you know are cordially invited to join Planned Parenthood for the first in a series of Community Action meetings with the purpose of overturning South Dakota's unconstitutional House Bill 1215, which legislates that the termination of a pregnancy is an illegal act with the only exception of preventing the death of the woman.

What: Community Action Team Meeting
When: Thursday, March 30, 6 - 8 p.m.
Where: Rapid City Library (610 Quincy St.), Meeting Room B
Who: Planned Parenthood of Rapid City, 605-341-2545
Why: Learn all about HB1215, the upcoming political process and how you can help make a difference in this political battle.

The real portrait of an activist, after all, is just a mirror.

I have a 1215 petition coming in the mail from South Dakota Healthy Families and plan to use my petition gathering effort to also collect Pennington Democrats. To me, soundly rejecting 1215 is an important effort to show the entire country that the Lege did not speak for the majority with 1215. But we must also treat the problem: the type of people we have elected to the Lege and governor seat. They must be replaced with more compassionate people that are focused on our real problems--not a quixotic and worse, unamerican effort to reform society though laws that reflect their (minority) viewpoint.
