Feb. 24 – Janesville, NARAL/Ryan's Office

Rep. Paul Ryan's office
20 South Main, Janesville,

 Feb. 24
 Friday
 12:00pm until 3:00pm


Please join as at Representative Paul Ryan's office in Janesville on Friday to urge Rep. Ryan to support women's access to health insurance that covers birth control, regardless of where a woman works!

Paul Ryan was on Meet the Press last week claiming that denying women... access to birth control is a matter of religious freedom, and last week the House Oversight and Government Reform Commitee held a hearing on a policy to require insurance plans cover contraceptives in which the panel was all-male and opposed to birth control coverage.

Join us in telling anti-contraception Rep. Paul Ryan to Let Women Speak!
