THIS SATURDAY MARCH 10
JOIN US AT THE WESTWOOD FEDERAL BUILDING at 9.00 AM to show appreciation for abortion providers.

On this day -
Stand up with your abortion services providers and say:
Thank you for your heroism, perserverance,courage,
and commitment to women.
Step up to the front lines and be a volunteer clinic escort.
Ask your local provider how you can help.
Praise clinic staff and doctors with postcards of appreciation.
Write your local newspaper, call talk shows to express support.
Take out ads in your newsletters and local newspapers.
Use your imagination, creativity and dedication to help create a climate at clinics where women, doctors and staff can hold their heads high without feeling shamed or fearing assault.
We must change the climate overall from one where abortion providers are vilified and attacked to one where they are honored and upheld as the heroes they are.
The National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers was initiated in 1996 and co-sponsored by many national organizations and individuals, as a way to help stop the isolation and create a positive climate for abortion providers across the country. March 10th is the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. David Gunn, the first provider murdered. It is a day to remember and honor Dr. Gunn and others who have and continue to put their lives on the line daily to make choice possible. Without abortion providers, there can be no "choice." And without choice women cannot be free to live and plan their lives!
