On Wednesday, December 2nd, NARAL Pro-Choice America, CREDO Action, UltraViolet and Courage Campaign will host a press call to discuss the campaign demanding that the Department of Justice direct the FBI to investigate recent attacks on Planned Parenthood clinics as what they are: acts of domestic terrorism. The petition has garnered over 300,000 signatures from activists with NARAL Pro-Choice America, CREDO, UltraViolet, and Courage Campaign, and the letter, which was sent less than 48 hours before the attack in Colorado Springs, is backed by over 140 groups and abortion providers.

WHAT: Press call on why the DOJ must investigate violent attacks against Planned Parenthood clinics as domestic terrorism
●    Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America
●    Shaunna Thomas, Co-founder and Co-executive Director of UltraViolet
●    Heidi Hess, Campaign Manager at CREDO Action
●    Laura Leavitt, Campaign Manager at Courage Campaign
WHERE: Participant Dial in Number: 888-632-3384, Conference ID: DOJ Campaign
WHEN: Wednesday, December 2nd at 12:00pm EST, 9:00am PST
In the recent letter to Attorney General Lynch, the groups state: “We, the undersigned, urge the Department of Justice to investigate the recent attacks on reproductive- health clinics using all appropriate federal statutes, including domestic terrorism. Since the release of the first deceptively edited video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) intended to vilify Planned Parenthood, and, by proxy, all abortion providers, anti-choice extremists have launched an unprecedented and multi-pronged assault against women’s reproductive rights.”
