The Supreme Court is likely to rule on Roe V Wade in June, that is why it’s very important to make our voices heard before then! We will be holding a week long protest (details on our Instagram @prochoicewithheart) culminating with our second annual DEFEND ROE Rally on Sunday May 15 at noon – nationwide!
Last year we held 121 protest in defense of abortion rights and we are planning even more for this year! We won’t be silenced!
Come out and demand the Supreme Court we have safe, and legal accessible abortion.
Why are we protesting?
Right now the Supreme Court in the United States is debating Roe v. Wade. Roe is the only protection women have to control their own bodies in the USA.
If we lose Roe 3 things will happen:1. Women will not have access to healthcare and will die and be permanently harmed from “back street” abortions. Restricting or making abortion illegal doesn’t stop them – it just stops safe ones.2. Miscarriages will be investigated. When abortion is illegal that means that every pregnancy loss must be investigated to ensure the “crime” of abortion didn’t happen.3. The rich will still have access to abortion.
Statement of Purpose:
1. To show national support for Roe v Wade, on the same day at the same time.2. To affirm Equal Rights for Women and pregnant people , especially body autonomy3. To Unite Together in our fight for women’s rightsWho Can Participate?
