Fighting for Our Rights!

RECEIVED Tue., April 20, 2004

Dear Editor,
   This Sunday, April 25, my mom and I will be in Washington, D.C., to take part in a historic event: the March for Women's Lives. Along with hundreds of other Texans, we will represent the Lone Star State, and with hundreds of thousands of women, men, and youth, we will stand proud for choice.
   We cannot stand idly by while the global gag rule stays in effect and while Bush makes recess appointments of extreme, "activist" judges. We will not tolerate the terrorist tactics employed by those seeking to deny affordable and reliable women's reproductive services. Instead, we will march – for women's health, reproductive services, cancer screenings, international family planning, and AIDS funding. We will be advocates for these rights for future generations to ensure that the voices of women are always heard. We will fight back, so that we may move forward.
