Do you know what it is? Do you know that it's at risk? Want some information? Ask away!

The house just voted to defund Planned Parenthood -- IOW, the reproductive healthcare and contraception services so many of you rely on -- and Title X.

You CAN still do something before this goes to the senate: https://secure.prochoiceamerica.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=4669

Please do!

Oh gawd, I wish I could do something. I'll be keeping all fingers and toes crossed.

If you can do something, please do!

Seconded.

Always knock before entering my room when I am in there alone, as I may be doing all sorts of wonderfully thrilling things that I'd rather you didn't see.

I think for folks out of the country, probably the best thing you can do is to help rally any friends here stateside to take action.

I'm physically unable to do anything-I did go and send a message to my state representatives, urging them to vote No on this, but that's all I can do with current physical challenges.

If you're outside the country, you can use internet means to educate Americans about the matter.

You'd be surprised how many people really pay attention to things like videos on youtube.
