WMW: NYC –#WhyIMarch: Rashmi Says Come March with Us


I’m marching because I’m a reproductive healthcare provider, and this administration, this current political milieu, has just completely abandoned science. And, so I had to go to DC and be there. To argue for women’s reproductive rights and for getting back to a scientific basis in our policy. Women come in, they’re sort of bearing the stigma of having had a prior pregnancy termination determination, or having infertility, or having had a miscarriage. It’s part of my job every day to help women erase that stigma and to feel healthy with the decisions and the life that they live. This election cycle definitely affected me personally. The way that Trump has made it OK to talk about violence, to talk about groups of people. As a woman of color it’s not OK to me, his language is completely unacceptable my community has been targeted violently again and again for people thinking we’re terrorists. We all live in a bubble and just post things to the same few people showing up enmasse, making that effort to say this really matters enough that we’re going to leave that bubble, leave our neighborhood, our comfy everyday life, and go there and say this really matters to a think is absolutely critical. Stand up for your rights, Come to DC and march with us!
