|SHL January/February Charity of the Quarter|
The following e-mail announcement was sent by Amy Monsky to the SHL News and Updates mailing list:
This January marks the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a Supreme Court decision establishing a woman's right to reproductive freedom. It ruled that a right to privacy under the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion.
All women should have access to safe and affordable healthcare, including abortion. Unfortunately, every year thousands of women sacrifice food, risk eviction, and pawn their possessions in order to raise money for an abortion. Some are forced to continue the pregnancy, abandon their eduction, ans stay strapped in poverty.
SHL's Charity of the Quarter is the South Carolina Women's Choice Fund, which provides financial assistance to women seeking an abortion, and to residents of South Carolina seeking an abortion in a neighboring state. Please consider making a financial contribution. Every amount makes a difference.
You can make an online contribution with a credit card here: http://lowcountryhumanists.org/default.php?page=Community
Or you can send a check to PO Box 32256, Charleston, SC 29417. Please make it payable to SHL and write "Charity of the Quarter" on the notes line.
President, Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry
