The banning of abortion medication is illegitimate!
legal abortion on demand & without apology nationwide & everywhere!
Forced Motherhood = Female Enslavement!
Stay tuned for updated protests here, and on social media.
Take Action: A Trump Appointed fascist judge in TX, has revoked the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, potentially banning its use nationwide. This is not settled- we must RESIST!
This is an OUTRAGEOUS violation of fundamental rights and an ILLEGITIMATE & FASCIST ASSAULT ON WOMEN. Immediate response needed!
Take to the streets Saturday, April 8 and thru the week – add a meet up place to protest in your area on our website map.
Last summer, the illegitimate fascist-packed Supreme Court revoked the constitutional protection for the right to abortion. Overnight, women in every part of this country were turned into second class citizens in the eyes of the law. This is being felt most harshly by the millions of women in the 14 states where abortion has been banned. But this rendering of women as second class citizens is no less true in the states where abortion is still legal. It is just that they haven’t been hit directly yet.
But that could change soon…
On April 7, a Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas, Matthew Kacsmaryk, ruled to block the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, one of the pills used in the medication abortion regimen. This medication has been used safely and very effectively for decades. This is Illegitimate!
If this ruling stands, it could ban abortion providers everywhere from prescribing mifepristone. Absent major public outcry, such a decision would likely be upheld by the Supreme Court when appealed.
Given that medication abortions make up more than half of all abortions in this country, such a ban would overwhelm abortion providers, creating long waitlists for abortions. Even in states where abortion is still legal, this would mean that thousands of women would be unable to get the abortions they need and instead be forced to have a child against their will.
Will you accept a society where physicians are turned into an arm of the state, forced to operationalize the anti-woman ideology of theocratic judges by denying patients the medications and services they need?
Will you silently adjust to another leap in the Christian fascist drive to force women back into open patriarchal subordination to men by using the state to force them to have children against their will?
Will you comfort yourself in this acquiescence with the misplaced hope that this assault will stop here? They won’t!
Or will you resist?
As we wrote in our founding statement, “The violent subjugation of half of society must not be accommodated, excused, downplayed, or surrendered to. IT MUST BE STOPPED!”
This move to revoke FDA approval of mifepristone must be met with defiant, determined & growing protests to stop these fascists from violating women’s fundamental rights & achieve abortion on demand without apology nationwide.
Friday, April 14: Sound the alarm and disrupt business as usual! Walk-out of school, hold die-ins, speak-outs at Federal Courthouses, make PSA at the cafeteria. Raise the Green Bandana of abortion rights that was first popularized by the courageous women of Latin America.
