Students for Choice at the University of Arizona have put out a call for assistance.
As most of you know, the University of Arizona has its very own gag rule. In 1974, the Arizona state legislature gave the university $5.5 million for football stadium renovations, but under the condition that the university would agree to a law prohibiting the education of the abortion procedure at any public university within the state (including, therefore, the University of Arizona). In turn, the University Medical Center does not provide abortion services, unless the life of the mother is threatened by her pregnancy.
On Saturday, November 5, the university will be holding its annual Homecoming football game. Students for Choice is taking the opportunity to “smear” campus and hand out flyers regarding this state law and what can be done about it
throughout the day during the festivities. We are taking this on as a community education campaign in order to raise awareness among university alumni, students, and the Tucson community about this generally “hush-hush” law.
Basically, we need all the help and support we can get in order to make this a largely successful event. We would greatly appreciate your participation (or your organization’s participation) and/or donations for this education campaign (our goal is to hand out 1,000 to 5,000 copies of this flyer, so we mainly need help with covering the cost of these copies or getting resources where we can make copies).
