Every single day, abortion providers stand with young people, women, and their families to ensure access to safe medical care – care that 1 in 3 women will need in her lifetime.
Unfortunately, many abortion providers continue to face significant risks, including harassment, stalking, threats to family members, and even violence. Despite these risks, they continue to stand with us and provide care.
In 1996, March 10th was declared National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day, to honor and celebrate the people who risk so much to ensure access to safe reproductive health care. Advocates for Youth is honored to stand with these brave and caring professionals.
Join us in showing your appreciation. Take a picture of yourself holding one of the signs above and then send to Julia@advocatesforyouth.org by Sunday March 10th.*
We will be delivering cards and books of your submissions to local abortion providers – to show them how much we appreciate their bravery and commitment. Help us get the word out - share this blog, and tweet it so we can share more thanks!
