My name is Marie Reimers and I am the vice-president of Vox: Voices for Planend Parenthood at Central Michigan University...
Vox is hosting a guest speaker on October 22d at 7:00 pm in the Park Library Auditorium, and we think that some of your members might be interested. Jan Wilberg is renowned social activist who had an illegal abortion while she was a student at CMU. Jan wrote about her experience on Salon.com and her post garnered more that 100,000 views. Her essay is a flashback to another time, when abortion was illegal and hard to obtain. She tells her story to remind the public why safe and legal abortion is crucial to women.
After Jan speaks there will be an opportunity for other women to tell their abortion stories in a safe and welcoming environment. Anyone who makes the space feel unsafe or unwelcoming will be asked to leave by campus security. 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in her lifetime. Abortion is a commonplace procedure, and it is time that we remove the stigma surrounding it.
I have attached the flier for our event. I would love if you could forward this email and the flier to your members.
If you have any other questions please let me know. You can contact me at this email or by phone at 989-751-1494.
