What We’ve Been Reading – A little late!

January 17, 2012

Sorry we missed getting up our news digest on Friday, everyone.  Let’s talk about the most important thing first: It’s almost Roe!  Celebrate with us by attending one of our commemorative celebrations. 

In Westchester, get an international perspective on the reproductive rights movement this Thursday, January 19, 6-8pm at The Women’s Club of White Plainstickets are available at $30 and at $50, or $20 if you have a student id.  

In Long Island, help us raise money for hard-hitting electoral work this year by attending our fundraiser with Planned Parenthood of Nassau County Action Fund and The Honorable Steve Israel.  Join us this Sunday, January 22, 11:30am-2pm at Oheka Castle.

And here’s some more news we missed getting up last week…

First, have you heard about the new sex ed standards?  We’re big fans!

Second, Washington State is considering a novel advance for access to abortion – the Reproductive Parity Act

“How to defeat Personhood USA” reminds me an awful lot of “How the Pro-Choice Movement Saved America” – both works point out exactly how mainstream birth control, and the American ideal of privacy, really are.

We will have to say good-bye to NYS Senator Suzi Oppenheimer – a pro-choice champion – at the end of this legislative session.  We wish you all the best for your shoulder surgery and in retirement!
