The Supreme Court’s cruel plan to repeal Roe v. Wade and wipe out the right to abortion is a major attack which must be DEFEATED NOWthis May and Junebefore it is hammered into law.

This could be done if people in our millions make clear, through massive non-violent resistance, that we will bring the gears of society to a grinding halt before we allow the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The repeal of a previously recognized Constitutional right has never been done before. This would be a massive attack on women, one-half of humanity, that on top of everything else would fall hardest on Black, Latina, and other particularly oppressed peoples. Not only that; it would put birth control and the rights of LGBTQ people in the crosshairs next.

We must unite all who can be united to oppose this monstrous attack on the fundamental right to abortion. Facing a challenge like this, while we recognize and respect our differences and welcome exchange of views, this is a moment when we must reach beyond our different experiences and political points of view to stay focused on the one overriding need of the moment: preventing the Supreme Court from ripping this right away.

It is unconscionable to not act together in powerful righteous resistance while a fundamental right of half of humanity is being ripped away. The hour is late, but there is still time. To fail to act when there is still a chance and a fight to be waged, weakens the people and emboldens those who would deny our rights.

WE MUST ACT NOW! It is far harder to win a right back after it has been taken, than it is to defend it while you still have it.

WE WON’T GO BACK!!!

Don’t listen to those who tell you that it is more ‘realistic’ to channel our fury into voting for the Democrats in the next election (after Roe has been overturned). No! It is far harder to win back a right once they have ripped it away than to defend it when you still have it. Besides, the Democrats and others have for decades sought ‘common ground’ with those driving the fanatical attack on abortion. What is needed is an uncompromising fight for the lives of women…

We will make clear to the woman-haters on the Supreme Court and everywhere else that if they take away the right to abortion, their society will be prevented from functioning at all. We will NOT go back!

The Supreme Court stands poised to gut and very possibly overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that established the right of women to abortion. A decision is expected by late Spring.

This comes on top of hundreds of restrictions that effectively deny this essential right to huge numbers of women already. This could trigger more than 20 states to immediately ban or severely restrict abortion.

The attack on abortion rights is part of a patriarchal Christian fascist program that takes aim at contraception as well as LGBTQ rights. Denying the right to abortion hits poor women, and especially Black and other women of color, with vicious consequence – tightening the chains of both white supremacy and the subjugation of women……
