SCHENECTADY, NY (10/10/2012)(readMedia)-- Co-creator of The Daily Show, comedian Lizz Winstead will be the featured speaker Wednesday evening, October 18th at Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson's Annual Celebration in Saratoga Springs.
Outraged by a year of intense legislative assaults on women's health care, Lizz Winstead resolved to help Planned Parenthood raise funds. As part of her nationwide stand-up tour – Planned Parenthood, I Am Here For You! - comedian, writer, producer and self-described "troublemaker" Winstead will entertain and inspire supporters at Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson's event.
Election year hook: This week Winstead launched LadyPartsJustice.com to combat the "hundreds of creepy laws passed that strip away a woman's right to privacy and access to healthcare."
