+  A Women's March? Speak For Yourself!

  • Description: "Everyone is talking about the so-called “Women’s March” happening in DC the day after President Trump is sworn in. The stated goal is to demonstrate to the new administration that “women’s rights are human rights.” They proclaim also that: “defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us” and “call on all defenders of human rights to join us.” Sounds great! Except…… Planned Parenthood, and NARAL Pro-Choice America are “partnering” with the March."
