Students to “March for Choice” on November 1

BETHLEHEM, Pa. October 29, 2004, 2004 – Pro-choice Moravian College students will “March for Choice” on Monday, November 1, at 9 a.m. The march will begin at the 1742 splotch on Moravian College’s Main Street Campus, continue down Main Street, and end at the Benigna statue on the Priscilla Payne Hurd campus. The march will culminate with a “speak out”, an informal program of individuals speaking out in support of women’s reproductive rights.

Students Kathleen Pennepacker, ’07. Veronica Howell, ‘06, Jenna Siciliano, ’06, and Katie Nicolais ’05, and faculty advisor, Dr. Stacey Zaremba, professor and chair of the department of psychology, and coordinator of the women’s studies program, launched Pro-Choice Week in response to the establishment of a Pro-Life Club at Moravian College.

During the course of the Pro-Choice Week, (October 25 to November 1), both sides of the abortion issue were discussed in an open forum debate; educational facts and quotes about the pro-choice platform were disseminated; and small wire hangers on red strings, symbolic of the unsafe practices used in illegal abortions are on display in the Haupert Union Building.

The women organizers of the week’s activities will continue their efforts by creating a Pro-Choice Club at Moravian College to support and provide information about the right to choose.
