I understand why people are against abortion. They have been told that it's wrong, that's it's dangerous, that people regret their decision, that it's murder. The messages we receive from television, movies, our families, and our communities about abortion aren't always accurate. I only know my experience and the experience of the thousands of people Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountain serves each year. Planned Parenthood was there for me when I had an abortion and Planned Parenthood was there for me when I was ready to have a child. Reproductive health should not be legislated by local governments. I'm proud to raise money to protect this essential care.
Together We Resist is an annual fundraising campaign organized by Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC) in response to politicians’ and protesters’ attempts to misinform, intimidate, harass, and shame our staff and patients. In the early 2000’s, these anti-choice protesters formed a campaign, known as “40 Days for Life", which organizes anti-reproductive health activists to protest outside of our health centers 24 hours-a-day for 40 days.
Our campaign, Together We Resist, serves to remind our staff and patients that we will never waver in our commitment to reproductive care, justice, and education – no matter who is pounding at our door. Nobody should have to face harassment or threats in order to provide or receive health care. This is a crucial time for us to raise awareness about the very real experiences that some individuals face to access abortion services in this country, and to continue our work to protect and expand access to health care, elect reproductive health champions, and pass proactive legislation.
We will not be deterred. Together, we resist.
