Join us to help ensure all women have access to the reproductive health care they need and deserve. Marilyn Minter, Cindy Sherman, and Laurie Simmons invite you to an Art auction benefiting Planned Parenthood of New York City and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. This event titled Choice Works will help raise money to provide reproductive health care to New Yorkers, and fight to protect women’s health in every state across the United States.
This is a crucial moment for Choice as hundreds of legislations all across the counrty have been passed restricting women’s access to reproductive health care, and this sort of law will turn back almost 42 years of steady progress for women’s rights.
The reproductive rights of women in this nation are being questioned and this is jeopardizing their access to the medical information and health care services that every women needs to be able to plan their lives and futures.
Women are being refused the power to make personal medical decisions with their doctors in many different states and we are fighting back. Choice Works art auction will help Planned Parenthood raise public awareness of the challenges facing women’s access to reproductive health care, and generate support for Planned Parenthood’s mission of protecting access to sexual and reproductive health care and comprehensive sex education.
