Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
                             National Edition
         Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
                   **********

Holding Women’s Health Hostage
with
LisaLyn Jacobs, Vice President of Government Relations,
Legal Momentum (formerly NOW LDF)

House Republicans threaten to shut down the government over federal
funding for Planned Parenthood.  After weeks of federal budget
negotiations, the focus shifted from economic issues to a particular rider
that would eliminate all gov't funding to Planned Parenthood through the
Title X family planning program. Conservatives are targeting Planned
Parenthood because some of its clinics provide abortions, even though
those abortions make up less than 3% of Planned Parenthood's services
and federal money is not used to pay for abortion services.  What was
proposed by the House of Representatives is to say that women can no
longer go to Planned Parenthood to get their cancer screenings, to get
their birth control, to get any kind of services through federal programs.

Highlights From The Money for Jobs, Not for War Rally

Thousands of protesters attended the largest national antiwar protest in
years.  The rally juxtaposed the Democrats and Republicans haggling over
budget proposals that in any event slashed billions in life-sustaining
programs. As the rally organizers stated Head Start, Medicare and
Medicaid are being threatened -- but there is always money for another
war – but, if we brought the troops home now, the deficit could be wiped
out in a heartbeat.  Saturday’s demonstration represented a renewal of
the antiwar movement and we will bring its highlights.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
