Videos: Rally to Support Family Planning
Just prior to filling up the County Commission chambers, Hamilton County, Tennessee residents join members of Chattanooga Organized for Action (COA) in a rally to support the funding of family planning services at the Health Department. A willfully ignorant majority of the all-male County Commission threatened the lives and health of thousands who rely on these services when they voted not to accept over $500,000 in grant funds at a previous meeting because they mistakenly believed abortion services were included. The rally, in addition to many phone calls and letters to County Commissioners and a highly informative presentation from the Health Department, resulted in a reversal of the Commission’s previous vote. Check out this video of the Rally to Support Family Planning at the Hamilton County Courthouse, Wednesday, May 18th. Recorded and edited by Megan Hollenbeck.
