Happy Galentine’s, Palentine’s, and Valentine’s — all the celebrations of love and community and friendship! We hope you’re planning to be at our volunteer gathering TONIGHT at 6pm! Join us to make Valentine’s Day cards for representatives. You can reach out to [email protected] for more info. These handmade cards will show we care about issues and will express our love for reproductive freedom. Valentines will be delivered during our weekly “Tuesdays with TWP”!
This Valentine’s Day, we want to shout from the rooftops how much we LOVE abortion providers!
We love, respect and honor the clinic staff, abortion funds, and health professionals who make it so that each person gets to make their own decisions about their health, their bodies and their lives. We thank you!
Sadly, right now the Rhode Island General Assembly is considering a bill that is incredibly disparaging to abortion providers and the folks who work so hard to ensure access to compassionate, affordable care. H5047 is a copycat of a bill we have seen many times before that pushes lies and harmful rhetoric about abortion to try to demonize providers, judge and stigmatize the people who need abortions, and put up limits to abortion. This bill is way out of touch with Rhode Island values.
JOIN US in speaking out against this kind of nonsense and speak up FOR abortion providers. Show providers some love!
- Be at the State House with our executive director, Jocelyn tomorrow on Valentine’s Day to hand out valentines to supportive lawmakers. Reach out to [email protected] for more info about “Tuesdays with TWP”!
- You can also show your love by taking action to oppose H5047. You can send an email to the House Judiciary Committee or make a call – click here for a guide on how to oppose this bill and you can find phone numbers here.
So much of our work is about fighting back and yes, fighting for and it can be overwhelming. We want to make it clear that we are fighting, but we are also leading with love for our communities as we pursue justice and a better future for us all! Thank you for being in this with us!
