WHAT: Protest the Pill Day 2010: The Pill Kills the Environment
This year, birth control advocates are celebrating 50 years of decriminalized hormonal contraceptives. American Life League and our co-sponsors don't think half a century of contaminating our waterways is something to celebrate. Study after study has shown that hormonal estrogen in the water has severely damaged the ecosystem and our health.
Join American Life League and co-sponsors as they launch the largest nationwide protest against the birth control pill.
The "Pill Kills Day" brings together activists, scientists and educators for planned protests all across the nation to demand honesty from America's pharmaceutical companies and government about how birth control is hazardous to children, women's health and even the environment.
WHEN: June 5, 2010, 11 a.m.
WHERE: Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington D.C. 1108 16th Street, NW Washington, DC 20036 (Planned Parenthood is one of the largest distributors of birth control in the country.)
WHY: "The birth control pill is not only killing preborn children and women, it is killing our environment," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League, "How long will we stand by and ignore the fact that hormonal contraception wreaks havoc on our children, women's health and the planet?"
