Women’s Caucus Chair Garcia Leads Rally to Support Planned Parenthood
(Sacramento) – A large crowd gathered on the steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento for the Legislative Women’s Caucus’ rally in support of Planned Parenthood. Women’s Caucus Chair Assemblymember Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) said the plan by Congressional Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood will endanger women throughout America. “Nobody is out there telling men they shouldn’t be using condoms or condemning vasectomies,” said Assemblymember Garcia. “Instead we have lawmakers, a majority of them men, using their elected power to trample on our rights to decide what is best for us.” Actress Lena Dunham, best known as the creator, writer and star of the HBO series Girls, also spoke at the rally.
