(Sacramento) – The Legislative Women’s Caucus, top legislative leaders, the creator and star of the HBO program “Girls” Lena Dunham and a host of others raised their voices in support of Planned Parenthood during a huge rally dubbed Capitol Pink Out Day 2017 on the steps of the State Capitol. Congressional Republicans have vowed to defund Planned Parenthood. “Defunding Planned Parenthood means denying potentially lifesaving care to millions of men and women,” said Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. “Lawmakers, a majority of them men, are using their elected power to trample on our rights,” declared Women’s Caucus Chair Assemblymember Cristina Garcia. Actress Lena Dunham added, “It’s about women, from all walks of life, having control over their healthcare choices and their bodies.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
