Support Women's health in Kansas
From Julie A. Burkhart, Founder and CEO, Trust Women Foundation:
As this year comes to a close, you should be proud of what you accomplished in 2016.
Your support of women made it possible for us to open the first new reproductive health care facility in Oklahoma that provides abortion in more than 40 years.That is more than FOUR DECADES, which is incredible. You did that. Because of you, Trust Women was able to provide high-quality reproductive health care to more people than ever before. If that's not a reason to pop some champagne tonight, I don't know what is.
I also want to remind you that no matter who is in the White House or in the governor's office in the states we serve, we will continue to provide direct access to abortion care for women and their families in underserved areas in the Midwest and South. We also will work toward the repeal of anti-choice legislation and for the passage of policies that would truly improve the lives of people in those regions and across this great country. Please rest assured that we will harder than ever this coming year for the rights of people everywhere.
That's why I'm asking you to consider giving $73 (in honor of Roe v. Wade), $35 (the cost of a birth control visit) or $25 (the cost of emergency contraception) before the clock strikes midnight. As always, your contribution is tax-deductible.
I wanted to share a note from one of our patients to remind you of what you do, each day, to improve the lives of women.
