Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund
As you may remember, Planned Parenthood Action fund held a visibility event prior to President Obama’s visit in Minneapolis this past Saturday for a health care reform rally at the Target Center. While I was there, I interviewed Tim Stanley, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund about why Planned Parenthood chose to hold a visibility event, and what Planned Parenthood’s role is in the health care reform debate. Check it out!
Many of the Planned Parenthood supporters attended the actual rally inside the Target center--a video about that is coming soon. Thanks to all of you who came out to support women’s health!
