The Ground We Walk On
Led by Rev Kristen Rohm
Humility comes from the same root word as humus. What would it be like to be grounded, to be rich and nurturing that we are like humus, the catalyst for the growth of ourselves and others? Come and join the conversation about how to cultivate humility and compassion.
Focus Collection for March:
Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio
SWUU Church has supported Reproductive Health Organizations through our focus collections for many years. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision by the Supreme Court that recognizes the constitutional right to privacy for women to make their own personal medical decisions. Yet many right wing groups still try to undermine this right. PPGOH needs our support to fight against those who would like to see Planned Parenthood defunded.
Planned Parenthood, commemorating its 100th anniversary, operates 19 health centers throughout Ohio. PP offers reproductive health care services for women, men, and young people. It supports people of color, those with low incomes, and the LGBTQ community. Its mission is to strengthen individuals, families, and communities by providing health care and responsible decision making about parenthood, relationships, and sexual health.
Some services and numbers from their most recent annual report:
· PPGOH served 63,738 patients last year with birth control, HIV and STI tests, pregnancy tests, and cancer screenings
· Works to address abortion stigma — at least ½ of all American women will face and unintended pregnancy by age 45
· Runs a Peer Education Program to educate teenagers on a fact-based medically accurate sex ed. curriculum
· Runs the Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies prenatal outreach program for at-risk mothers
More information is available at www.ppgoh.org, in the SWUU lobby, and on the Social Justice bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall. Your donation during March allows PPGOH to continue to provide affordable, quality, confidential care to its patients. Every Gift Matters.
