Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, [ profile] frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.


Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit:

I can't believe LJ is actually taking a stand on such a hot topic, but a huge bravo to them for doing so. Taking away an organization that is, for far too many American women, the only option they have for healthcare, simply because abortion makes up a lousy 3% of that organization's services, is just flat out wrong.

Even if, like me, you don't really have the cash to donate right now, please at least leave a comment at the original post thanking LJ for doing this. I know LJ has done a lot of things wrong, but this is one thing they actually got right, and they need some supportive comments to counter the shitstorm of anti-choicers' ill-informed rhetoric clogging up the comment threads. BTW, don't read the threads unless you feel like having your brain explode with RAGE.
