Thank You, Abortion Providers

Sunday, March 10, was National Thank An Abortion Provider Day.  I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Willie Parker last year in Washington, D.C., at the Center for American Progress, and wanted to share this short video of him accepting the Moody-Patterson Award for Leadership in Reproductive Justice.  It was presented by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.

These are not abstract ideological issues.  These are issues of basic health and safety for women and their families.  And for some of us, like Dr. Parker, it is an act of moral conscience and religious freedom.

Thank you, Dr. Parker.

Thank you, abortion providers everywhere, for trusting women in the face of hatred, harassment, and threats to your own safety.
