The Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women, a national coalition of 42 reproductive rights organizations, has announced a series of prominently displayed banners "to build the momentum and solidarity of the pro-choice majority." The banners are currently flying on San Fracisco's busy Market Street.
According to the coalition, the banners are part of a national "virtual online march" in collaboration with MoveOn.org this month.
The Silver Ribbon banners read:
Her Decision, Her Choice
U.S. Out of My Uterus
Fix the Economy, Support My Autonomy
Reproductive Rights are Human Rights
San Francisco is Pro-Choice
There are also banners from partner organizations, including:
We Trust Black Women, Do You? – Sistersong
Catholics for Choice
Legal Abortion is a Human Right: United Nations – BACORR
Freedom, Privacy, Choice – NARAL California
San Francisco Supports Planned Parenthood Shasta/Pacific
As Silver Ribbon co-director Ellen R. Shaffer said, “Many women are angry that our health is being used as a political football, in attempts to divert attention away from the troubled economy as we enter an election year. We need the government to fix the economy and to fund vital basic health services, that are especially critical for low-income women, and to quit interfering with our private decisions about our reproductive health.”
