Our board member Dr. Willie Parker said:
Twice a month I travel from my home in Birmingham, Alabama, to the last clinic in Mississippi that provides abortions, the Jackson Women’s Health Organization. There I am one of only two obstetrician/gynecologists in the entire state who provides this critical reproductive health care. I am also a plaintiff in an ongoing lawsuit aimed at keeping this clinic open.
I have spent over two years fighting on behalf of this clinic. And the organization that trained me and guides me in this work is Physicians for Reproductive Health. I ask you to please join me in supporting them with a contribution for #GivingTuesday at a challenging time for women’s reproductive rights.
By contributing to this vibrant, sophisticated, and remarkably effective organization on #GivingTuesday, you are helping to ensure that more physicians have the skills and support they need to advocate for all patients… because without doctor-advocates like me, this care will not be available anywhere.
You can play a meaningful role this #GivingTuesday. It's easy: You encourage your friends and loved ones to support Physicians by sharing our Facebook and Twitter updates on #GivingTuesday and by letting them know how they can donate this holiday season. Or, craft your own Facebook or Twitter messages telling people why you give to us! Whatever you decide, we are grateful for your support. Thank you.
