The League has and will continue to speak out against this bill, relying on the League's position that public policy ... must affirm the constitutional right of privacy of the individual to make reproductive choices and arguing that the bill is not about patient safety but about stopping abortions in St. Joseph County.
I ask you to participate in these efforts in the following ways:
1. Please plan to attend the February 10 County Council meeting (4th floor County-City Building, 7:00pm). Whether or not the bill will come to a vote that evening is not yet known. Regardless, there should be opportunity at the end of the meeting to speak in opposition. Please plan to attend and make your personal statement -- even if your voice shakes (like mine).
You might also want to attend the January 27 committee meeting where this bill will be discussed. Space is limited, with no opportunity to speak (unless asked), but you will learn and your presence will make a statement. 5:30 4th floor Council conference room.
2. WRITE to your Council member. Direct emails to: firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also call and send letters to home addresses, which you will find here: http://www.stjosephcountyindiana.com/departments/sjccouncil/default.htm (as well as in your Citizen's Guide).
122. S. Michigan St., South Bend Chocolate Cafe.
Speaker begins at noon.
Come as early as 11:30 to purchase lunch.
