Via the National Abortion Federation:
March 10 was set aside in 1996 as the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers to commemorate the 1993 assassination of Dr. David Gunn, the first provider murdered by an anti-abortion extremist. This month, and especially today, we pause to honor the men and women who put their lives at risk to make reproductive choice a reality.
Despite great personal sacrifice, abortion providers remain dedicated to protecting the lives and health of women by providing them with quality abortion care. There aren’t many professions that would require a person to deal with such threats and harassment, and the men and women who brave this path are truly heroes.Show your support for these courageous health care professionals by making a donation to NAF in their honor.
NAF members include providers at private and non-profit clinics, Planned Parenthood affiliates, hospitals, and physicians’ offices who together care for more than half the women who choose abortion each year in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.Make a donation today to honor your local abortion provider or someone who has touched your life, and we will send an acknowledgment card to the honoree to let them know about your tribute.
