|Thank Secretary of State Clinton for Defending the Right to Safe Abortion|
April 30, 2009
On April 22, 2009 at a congressional hearing on U.S. foreign policy priorities for the Obama Administration, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended the right to safe abortion worldwide and the Obama Administration's decision to finance reproductive health services. "We are now an Administration that will protect the rights of women," said Clinton, "including their rights to reproductive health care." The full hearing can be viewed here.
Secretary Clinton deserves recognition for her ongoing effort to ensure that the health and rights of women and girls are prioritized in U.S. foreign policy and resources. We also need to let her know that we stand behind her as they move these words into action in both structural and policy changes within the Administration.

Dear Secretary Clinton,
Your continued leadership will allow millions to access the sexual and reproductive health services and information they need.
Change is needed - and the world relies on you to make it happen. I will stand with you as you continue revamp US policies and programs to ensure every woman's and girls' right to a just and healthy life.
