"Women's Healthcare is Under Attack! What Do We Do? Stand Up, Fight Back!"

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Mon, Feb 21, 2011 at 6:01 PM

Wow wow wow! I'm inside the lobby of the Portland Planned Parenthood headquarters, listening to over 400 people chant outside for women's healthcare rights over a din of rush hour honking horns. The crowd of Planned Parenthood supporters stretches down the entire block of NE MLK Avenue in front of the clinic.

All these people are here to rally against the GOP plan to cut all funding for low cost and free birth control. I have 172 more photos to post, but for now:

UPDATE 6:19PM: Check out my best photos from the protest in the slideshow below. Now: can all this enthusiasm keep the Senate from slashing funding for birth control?
