PLEASE RSVP here:
On September 29th Planned Parenthood supporters across the country will stand together for the first-ever National Pink Out Day. We will turn the country PINK — Planned Parenthood Pink.
We will demonstrate in partnership with NOW, MoveOn and other supporting organizations just how many people across the country are willing to stand up and fight for women's health and rights.
Be seen, be heard, be a part of this movement and this moment. Pink Out Day is our time to say:
Listen to over a million Americans who are sick and tired of the relentless attacks on reproductive health care.
Listen to the one-in-five American women who has received care at a Planned Parenthood health center.
It will tell anti-abortion extremists and politicians that we are everywhere and we will not let them use fraud and deception to shut down the health centers so many women rely on for care. This rally will be women and men nationwide standing together to say: We’re not backing down, not today, not ever.
Please join us, we're counting on you to help.
President, Brevard NOW

Media Praise Carly Fiorina's GOP Debate Attack On Planned Parenthood Despite It Being False
Media Matters, by Katie Sullivan, Sept. 17, 2015
Media outlets gave Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina glowing reviews for her answer to a question about defunding Planned Parenthood during the second GOP debate on September 16.
