With the House voting to defund Planned Parenthood and outrageous billboards popping up in SoHo, the city's pro-choice population is good and angry. So today, they're protesting. The Rally for Women's Health happened this afternoon at Foley Square, with speakers like Senator Chuck Schumer, Gloria Steinem and Christine Quinn, and performances by the Mountain Goats and Nellie McKay.
Previously, Quinn said of the issue, "For so many New Yorkers, when they feel they don’t know where to turn, they always have one option: Planned Parenthood of New York City. Today’s vote is a slap in the face for women and their right to choose. We hope the Senate will do right by women and block this nonsense proposal." We'll have a report on everything that happened later, but for now here's their message to Speaker of the House John Boehner.
