We must prioritize real healthcare over abortion facilities!

studentsforlife.quorum.us We are calling on every mayor and governor to use their emergency powers to close abortion facilities and to ask the facilities to donate their taxpayer-funded, necessary medical supplies to local hospitals and clinics that need it to provide real life-saving care.
