Produced for Planned Parenthood of South, East & North Florida, this is the first of 5 very short, compelling human-interest stories, making clear why Planned Parenthood attacks must stop. As President Obama has made clear: "Enough is enough". Reproductive rights, personal liberty, freedom of choice, and public health -- all are under attack when Planned Parenthood is attacked. We Americans of good conscience have to push back against the unduly politicized, media-hyped culture of fear, intolerance and incivility that fuels such attacks, then finds ways to rationalize and condone them.
See here the simple, honest, human face and selfless spirit of Planned Parenthood in action. Understand its actual work and mission in much of Broward County, Florida, and in other communities of need nationwide. Know that beyond the frontline targets and innocent victims of both political and violent attacks on Planned Parenthood, it's also young Americans like the three featured in these videos being targeted for intimidation and suppression. The powerful religious-corporate-political forces behind the Pro-Life movement do not like to see future leaders like these three emerge, and it's up to the rest of us to have their backs -- and Planned Parenthood's.
This suite of short films (produced by Daniel Tilson for Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida) highlights the personal stories of Diane Macias, Kheyanna Suarez, and Mario Lopez, a trio of stellar South Florida college students and community activists. Together, their stories tell The Big Story -- of the life-saving educational, informational and service delivery void filled by Planned Parenthood affiliates in inner-city neighborhoods in Florida and nationwide; and of the powerful positive impact young men and women like these three are having in those communities, in partnership with Planned Parenthood.
