UAWOW Rally - Louisiana

Ashley Heyer, Southeast Louisiana Press Liaison for Unite Women, and Ashley Baggett, State Coordinator for Unite Women Louisiana, delivered the opening statements at the Baton Rouge Unite Women’s Rally held on April 28.

Ms. Heyer described her shock at the realization about just how much of the war on women is focused not on abortion, but on restricting birth control. The shock was intensified by the fact that members of her family have been physicians.

She introduced Ashley Baggett who recounted her own experience as a survivor of domestic abuse and how that experience changed her.
