On March 10, 1993 Dr. David Gunn was murdered by an anti-abortion extremist. Three years later to honor his life and work the 10th of March became the National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers.
Every day, we are thankful and honored that abortion providers all over the country put their lives at risk to provide comprehensive health care.
Abortion providers are faced with threats of violence against them and their families, aggressive legislative limitations, and emotional harassment. These are just a few of the intimidation tactics that are used to deter clinicians from providing full spectrum patient centered health care. We, at RHAP, are fortunate to work with caring, intelligent, and selfless providers located all over the country.
In honor of this upcoming Appreciation Day, we are raising funds to provide primary care clinicians with training, equipment, and supplies so they can provide abortion care in their communities. A generous donor has pledged to match all donations we receive until March 10th. Make a donation in solidarity of clinicians all over the country!
We are also collecting your thoughts of gratitude to send to abortion providers in the US. We invite you to use this form to share your messages with us – Tell us why you appreciate abortion providers. We’ll then translate your messages into postcards and mail them to abortion providers and share on social media. Your kind words will provide encouragement during these very difficult times!
