OUR BODIES OUR CHOICE: Protest FOR Trans Rights / Protest FOR Abortion Rights / & MORE!!!
Join a protest AGAINST the “Pro-Life Action League” when it comes to Chicago on June 24th!!
June 24th is the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that overturned the nationwide right to abortion.
But the attacks on abortion are a symptom of a larger problem: the drive by rightwing organizations, judges and politicians to control our own bodies. A tidal wave of legislation in state after state is attacking the rights of Trans people to get gender affirming healthcare and to participate in public life through sports, restroom access and more.
In April, the ACLU noted that there are at least 417 anti-LGBTQ bills in state legislatures outlawing everything from equal marriage rights for same sex couples to LGBTQ inclusive education in public schools. This spring, the Supreme Court is set to rule on a case, 303 Creative v. Elenis, that could overturn local laws guaranteeing equal access to public accommodations for LGBTQs.
Anti-abortion Texas judges are currently “reviewing” a right-wing organization’s legal case that aims to impose a nationwide ban on Mifepristone, one of two drugs used to perform medication-based abortions – 54% of the abortions currently performed in the United States. That case could be heading to the Supreme Court as early as this fall.
In LGBTQ Pride Month and on the one year anniversary of the overturn of Roe v. Wade, reproductive rights and LGBTQ liberation organizations are uniting with one voice to say: WE Must Control Our Bodies!
Please join us as we protest against the far right and celebrate the core spirit of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion that rebirthed the LGBTQ movement: Only WE can free us!
