We REFUSE To Let the Supreme Court

Deny Women’s Humanity & Decimate Their Rights!

ABORTION ON DEMAND & WITHOUT APOLOGY!

April 8: Wear #Green4Abortion & April 9 PROTEST Nationwide

The Supreme Court is on track to gut women’s fundamental right to abortion by late spring. Already, the Supreme Court has allowed an unconstitutional near-total abortion ban in Texas. Emboldened by all this, Christian fascists have unleashed a shocking barrage of woman-hating abortion bans nationwide, including:

  • Idaho just banned nearly all abortions and incentivized the families of rapists to sue anyone who helps the woman who was raped get an abortion!

  • Missouri is pushing to ban abortions even in cases of ectopic pregnancies which are never viable and often lethal to the woman and is seeking to punish anyone who assists a woman from Missouri in accessing an abortion in another state!

Yet all too many pro-choice leaders and Democratic Party politicians still preach a “realism” of accepting the Court’s gutting of abortion rights. They tell us to dig in for the “long-haul” of the electoral process or to focus on helping women induce their own abortions. Whatever their intent, this amounts to capitulating in advance. No! If we lie down now, this whole fascist juggernaut will only further accelerate.

Denying the right to abortion does grotesque physical, emotional, societal, and psychic violence to women by forcing them to have children against their will. Forced motherhood is female enslavement. Denying abortion hits Black women and other women of color especially hard and is bound up with a theocratic program also aimed at LGBTQ people.

We must resist! Fill the streets with our fury. Growing in numbers, in cities and small towns, uniting all who can be united and coming back stronger in continuing nonviolent mass protest. Shaking all of society. Changing the whole political atmosphere and what women-haters – from the Supreme Court to the State Houses to the streets – feel they can get away with. Rising up with courage and conviction to defeat this assault while bringing closer a future where women and all people are free.

NOW is the time to stand up, together, as if our lives depend upon it—for, in fact, they do.
