Day 1–Read an Earth Day Blog
Earth Day is a time to reflect on Mother Earth, but it’s also a good time to reflect on how the treatment of women, girls and mothers is inextricably linked to the environment. Family planning and reproductive health care is essential for healthy mothers, healthy families, and, ultimately, a healthy planet. They are inseparable. As part of the 17 days of action linking Earth Day (April 22) to Mother’s Day (May 8), endorsers and supporters of the “Million for a Billion” petition campaign are taking this message to the blogosphere.
