Join Democrats Abroad Canada at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT/9 pm AT on October 19, 2021 for a talk with Dr. Colleen McNicholas, the Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri. Planned Parenthood is the sole abortion provider in the state of Missouri, though state officials have tried hard to shut it down.
A reproductive health expert with more than 10 years of experience as an obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. McNicholas will speak about the attacks on reproductive health access taking place in the U.S. and their impact on health outcomes. She will also discuss the important ways in which we as citizens can take action. As she knows from experience, participation in local elections is key to protecting access to reproductive health care.
This event is jointly sponsored by Democrats Abroad Canada and the Democrats Abroad Women's Caucus. All are welcome.
Dr. McNicholas is the first speaker in a pivotal series of talks Democrats Abroad Canada is presenting starting this fall and leading up to the 2022 midterms. Focused on the theme Our Democracy: Past, Present and Future, these talks will help us learn more about our history and what we can do to improve participation and get the results we want.
