Emergency Protest: Bans Off Our Bodies !!!!
September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Supreme Court’s refusal to block the Texas law banning abortions and deputizing vigilantes to enforce it is an unprecedented intrusion into the constitutional rights of women and a stunning attack on the rule of law. This article in The Guardian is one of the best to be published about it. And here’s Justice Sotomayor’s dissent, the Tribune editorial, and Rex Huppke’s Trib column.
We’re all coming together in several emergency protests: this Friday September 10th at 12 noon, at Federal Plaza in downtown Chicago (here’s the Planned Parenthood Illinois Action webpage for the event) and at the federal courthouse in Springfield, on Saturday September 18th also at Federal Plaza (sponsored by the Illinois Handmaids) … and then … and this one will be HUGE … on Saturday October 2nd … in downtown Chicago, at 2:30pm at the central square in Woodstock in McHenry County, in Washington, and in major cities all across the country.
It’s time to come together to demand: Abortion On Demand and Without Apology. See you there … this Friday … bring your masks … and bring signs.
