'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!'
