    Rally for Our Reproductive Health

    Rally for Our Reproductive Health - #NoGagRule

    May 24th | 6:00-8:00pm | City Hall Park Manhattan NYC (Broadway & Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007)

    Any day now, the Trump-Pence Administration is expected to impose new rules that are designed to make it impossible for patients to get birth control or preventive care from reproductive health care providers like Planned Parenthood, and others that provide medically accurate sexual and reproductive health care services. 

    Under this rule "domestic gag rule", doctors, nurses, hospitals, and community health centers across the United States could no longer provide abortion or refer their patients for safe, legal abortion if they want to continue to receive Title X funding. It removes the guarantee that patients are getting full and accurate information about their health care from a doctor. 

    Join Planned Parenthood of New York City and other Planned Parenthood affiliates to speak out against this dangerous policy and demand access to the full range of reproductive health care and services we all need to lead healthy, empowered lives!
