Pledge to Support Women’s Healthcare Worldwide – The Petition Site

Via Scoop.itToday’s Transmedia Woman

More than 350,000 women die each year from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Instead of supporting these women, opponents of women’s health want to slash funding for international family planning programs and impose harmful restrictions on U.S. aid to developing nations.   It’s not ok to balance the budget on the backs of women and now is the time to make your voice heard. Last year’s investments helped prevent 11.7 million unintended pregnancies, 140,000 children from losing their mothers and 32,000 women from dying during childbirth.   Pledge to support universal and unrestricted access to essential women’s healthcare, including access to family planning:
— Tell one friend that access to reproductive health should be universal and that the U.S. should do its part to support women around the world
— Tweet this: I support universal access to family planning, my government should, too! #standstrong4women
