Women and supporters will speak out on Wednesday, January 22nd to answer the Walk for Life West Coast banners. WFL posted banners in downtown San Francisco, saying ABORTION HURTS WOMEN. Our response: The false statement on the WFL banners misleads women and need to be removed by the city of San Francisco.

Last week Supervisor Campos introduced a resolution at the San Francisco Board of Supervisors meeting opposing the ant-abortion
rights rally and the false statements about abortion. The Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women wrote a letter to Mayor Edwin M. Lee
saying the Abortion Hurts Women banners contain a false and hateful statement and called for the banners to be removed. Mayor Lee
rejected the Silver Ribbon’s request. WORD (Women Organized to Resist and Defend) is also speaking out to defend women’s reproductive

This speak out is about much more than pro-life banners on the streets of San Francisco, it is about a women’s right to choose what happens
to her body. The landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade was the first nationwide guarantee that women could terminate unwanted or unhealthy pregnancies. The ruling was a victory for the women's. Come join us on the anniversary of Roe v Wade and speak out!
