Feminists Rally on Capitol Hill Against Stupak/Pitts

Hundreds of feminist activists from around the country gathered today on Capitol Hill to rally against the anti-abortion Stupak/Pitts amendment to the health insurance reform bill. The lobby day was presented by the Stop Stupak Coalition, which is also sponsoring a week of action that started Monday. The coalition includes 53 partners that form “a broad group of advocacy organizations from the progressive and women’s health communities.”
