Pledge A Picketer

MFP’s 2017 Pledge A Picketer campaign kicks off March 1

 It’s that time of year again, when picketers swarm outside our Augusta clinic for forty long days, intending to shame and intimidate our patients. They bring hateful and deceptive signs with them, as well as critical and judgmental attitudes. They don’t know who our patients are or anything about their back stories. All they know is that our patients are doing something they don’t approve of.

 One easy and very public way to FIGHT BACK is to participate in our annual PLEDGE-A-PICKETER campaign. Your pledge of 5 cents, 10 cents,  25 cents, or more per picketer (last year we recorded 1,105 protestors)  - or your one-time gift of $5 or more - will help to ensure continued access to abortion care in Maine. It’s “public” because we post a banner recording the amount of pledges on our building where the protestors can see it very clearly.

 Remember: 100% of your pledge/gift stays in Maine for Maine people.

 Click here to make a pledge.

 Thanks! You can keep up to date on the campaign’s progress on Twitter and our Facebook page.
