On April 7th the Center for Gender Equity (CGE) will be gathering students in the University Center at Pacific University to ‘drop dead’ between the hours of 12 and 1 pm. This demonstration is to raise awareness for the need of Title X funding through representing the statistic of one woman in the world dies every 60 seconds from a preventable pregnancy related complication. One student will be ‘dropping dead’ every 60 seconds so at the end of the hour the University Center will be full of ‘dead’ bodies.’ If Title X funding is taken away, and Planned Parenthood and independent women’s health clinics serving low-income women are stripped of federal funding for family planning, many more women will face these unnecessary complications.
