A few of the #yes2access tweets that have been rolling in all morning!  Thank you to everyone who is participating and demonstrating the need for pro-choice representation in government!

Important: be gender inclusive! Women aren’t the only people who need access to reproductive healthcare and abortion.

BuzzFeed News spoke to Mary, who said the protesters grew tired of her "yeasty cries."

“Initially they had spread down the sidewalks on both sides of the street, but after some yelling and high kicks on my part, they huddled together,” she said.

“They glared at my princess wave and cheerleader enthusiasm, and they began a prayer circle. This is when I really shined. I have never made my voice louder.”

Perhaps most concerning, one sign read: “Where is Your Church?”
At first blush, this sign might not seem any more disturbing than the others. However, its troublesome meaning becomes clear when you consider the history of Wichita. Less than six years ago, George Tiller, a Wichita abortion doctor and one of the most high-profile abortion providers in the country, was assassinated point-blank on a Sunday morning in the foyer of his church. Tiller was the eighth abortion provider murdered in this country for his work.

Jemima Kirke speaks about her abortion for Center For Reproductive Rights.

‘The tricky part is that we think that we have free choice & we are able to do whatever we want but there are these hoops we have to jump through to get them’

The first week of our #NBProchoice twitter campaign has come and gone and we are getting ready to begin on week two tomorrow.   Hundreds of tweets were sent out to MLAs and Premier Alward. ZERO responses were sent back.  ZERO. Let that sink in for a moment.  These public servants openly attended an event celebrating the status quo and/or further restriction of reproductive healthcare and bodily autonomy, not to mention flat-out endorsing NB’s violation of the Canada Health Act, Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and UN human rights standards. Two months have gone by with absolutely no response from the sitting government.  We send messages to them every single day through letters, emails, tweets and phone calls.  We are here, we want to talk, and no one cares.  This movement cannot lose steam.  We need to show that we are not going anywhere, this issue is NOT going away, it WILL be an election issue, and we WILL remember every single minute of silence. #NBProchoice #ProchoixNB
