Our Bodies Ourselves has just launched : OUR BODIES, OUR VOTES.
The goal of this campaign is to retain and restore women’s access to reproductive health care and rights, now under attack in almost every state across the country.
Please read our press release, which quotes both Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, and Dr. Timothy RB Johnson. Both are medical leaders who are deeply troubled by recent trends to undermine the provision of evidence-based reproductive health care and the doctor/patient relationship.
The Our Bodies, Our Votes campaign includes:
* Our Bodies, Our Votes bumper stickers. Order stickers here with a donation to OBOS: — only $10 for 3 stickers!
* OurBodiesOurVotes.com, with information on contraception and abortion, plus news and activist resources and free virtual stickers you can add to your blog or social media.
* OurBodiesOurVotes.Tumblr.com, where everyone can post and view photos of Our Bodies, Our Votes stickers appearing across the country.
I hope you will join us in spreading the word by forwarding this email to friends and colleagues who care about women’s access to reproductive health care, and by sharing the links with your networks. If you’re on Twitter, here’s the campaign hashtag: #obov2012
Finally, please make a donation to support our ongoing work to preserve access to reproductive health care.
Thanks, as always, for your support and for your own efforts to improve reproductive health care for all.

P.P.S. As some of you may know already, the Library of Congress included “Our Bodies, Ourselves” in its new exhibition of Books That Shaped America, and Time magazine named the book one of the 100 best and most influential nonfiction English books written since 1923. The 2011 edition has received critical acclaim and was selected by Library Journal as one of the eight best consumer health books of the year.
If you want to earmark a generous donation towards a new initiative to get this book into the hands of 10,000 young college-age students, please contact me directly. Thanks so much for your interest and support!
