When it comes to abortion access, no state is truly “safe”–including Illinois. In fact, there are nearly 100 anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in our state lying to pregnant people about abortion, emergency contraception, and reproductive health.

Join Abortion Access Front (AAF), Reproductive Transparency Now (RTN), and a coalition of pro-abortion organizations in Chicago to bring awareness to the growing public health threat from CPCs and highlight the ongoing advocacy efforts to stop them in their tracks. NEVER STOP STOPPIN’ FAKE CLINICS!

Date: Saturday, July 15th

Start Time: 2:00pm CT

Place: Outside of 8 S. Michigan Ave in The Loop, Chicago. This location is home to one of Chicago’s anti-abortion CPCs.

Agenda: There will be a brief rally starting shortly after 2:00pm, followed by a march.

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!

The outsized abortion rights victory in Kansas shows that if we mobilize, we win!

The electoral victories in Kansas and in recent special elections show the broad popular support for people to control their own bodies and reproductive decisions. Millions are demanding the freedom to assert our autonomy and build our families free of discrimination, criminalization, and barriers.

Here in Chicago, a broad group of organizations is organizing in solidarity with a National Day of Action to defend – and expand – our access to safe and legal abortion and other reproductive rights.

We dream of a future with protections beyond Roe, in which everyone – no matter who they are, where they are from, or how much money they make – can access free, affirming healthcare within resourced, supportive communities.

Decades of erosion of access to basic healthcare such as abortion care and the overturn of Roe v. Wade, show we cannot depend on politicians and the voting booth alone to preserve and expand our rights.

We must also be in the streets to make sure that politicians and the courts heed our demands, and to build power within our communities. We must take direct action to support people coming to Illinois to exercise their reproductive rights and support their efforts to restore those rights in their home states.

We must recognize that the attack on abortion rights is part of a broader attack on all of our rights – union rights, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, and the rights of working people to do more than fight for scraps and shoddy social services in the world’s wealthiest nation.

Join us on Monday August 1st at 6 PM to demand an end to the torture at Menard Prison.

Our demands are:
Transfer Michael Minnifield, Isaiah Brady, and Chaz Thrailkill out of Menard immediately!

Pass the Isolated Confinement Restriction Act HB 3564 NOW!
Hold guards who have abused our loved ones accountable!
Shut Down Menard!

We ask all those who are able to come out and join us as we bring these demands forward in a demonstration. We need every person who can to join us in raising these demands, until Rob Jeffreys and JB Pritzker ACT to address the needs of our loved ones, and until this crisis has the attention it needs!

Oppose Anti-Abortionists Coming to Chicago!

Having overturned Roe v. Wade by years of packing the Supreme Court, anti-abortion forces now aim to abolish abortion rights in every state.

On July 9th they will bring their crusade to Chicago’s Federal Plaza – they MUST be opposed!

Besides wanting to outlaw abortion nationwide, they are against reproductive rights in general – contraception, quality sex education, accessible childcare, the ability to raise children without crushing economic burdens. It’s no accident that anti-abortion states provide the worst levels of services to young parents and guardians and have the highest maternal mortality rates.

They want to abolish all LGBTQ rights and most stridently oppose the #blacklivesmatter movement and immigrant rights. In short, their anti-abortion agenda has nothing to do with promoting “life.”

Please join a protest AGAINST the anti-abortionists and their crusade to take away our rights!
