Silent Vigil for Rape Victims

This post is along the same lines of my conscientious objector post of a few days ago, but just wanted to pass this information along as I will be unable to attend, but some of you may want to.

Emergency Contraception
Rape Victims Can't Wait!

Last month lawmakers let the clock run out on rape victims.

With the defeat of a bill that would have required that all publicly funded hospitals offer emergency contraception (EC or the "morning-after" pill) to rape victims, dozens of women will not get the standard care they need to prevent an unintended pregnancy from rape.

Let elected officials know that rape victims can't wait!

We must work to make sure our elected officials understand the devastating realities that rape victims face in crisis, and why they need EC without delay and without judgment.

Join us for: Silent Vigil
Dates: April 11 & April 18
Time: 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: State Capitol

Help keep our message alive through our silent vigils. We'll stand in solidarity for Connecticut's women and pass out information at the State Capitol.

Contact us now! Please email info@pro-choicect.org or call 860-524-1086 to sign up and find out where to meet.
