A recent article by Diana Egozcue on a strategy to pass the ERA in Virginia said that a website would be up shortly. It would be good for your readers to know one already exists even though we’re hoping to have a fancier one in the future.:

There is a website to support the ERA in VA. It’s: https://sites.google.com/site/4erava/Home

There is also a networking yahoogroup for the ERA in VA. People can subscribe by sending a blank post to:

Merle Hoffman's Choices: A Post-Roe Abortion Rights Manifesto

“Merle Hoffman has always known that in a democracy, we each have decision-making power over the fate of our own bodies. She is a national hero for us all.” —Gloria Steinem

In the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade and a country divided, Merle Hoffman, a pioneer in the pro-choice movement and women’s healthcare, offers an unapologetic and authoritative take on abortion calling it “the front line and the bottom line of women’s freedom and liberty.” 

Merle Hoffman has been at the forefront of the reproductive freedom movement since the 1970s. Three years before the Supreme Court legalized abortion through Roe v. Wade, she helped to establish one of the United States’ first abortion centers in Flushing, Queens, and later went on to found Choices, one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive women’s medical facilities. For the last five decades, Hoffman has been a steadfast warrior and fierce advocate for every woman’s right to choose when and whether or not to be a mother.
