UNITED STATES

I first made the connection between population, women’s education and choice, and our natural world when the Audubon Society asked me to go to Washington DC to meet with my senators, Dick Durbin and a brand-new senator, Barack Obama. The conservative majority was withholding funding to domestic and international organizations with any remote connection to a women’s right to choose, including basic family planning. Population pressure severely impacts habitat and the quality of the environment for all creatures. Women and Girls: speak out for those who do not (yet) have a choice!
