Stop the War on Reproductive Rights!
Rally at Dolores Park in SF, 1:30-4:00pm
Saturday, November 5th, 2005
followed by a
Take Back the Night March
Come for a day at the park to demand full reproductive justice! Help build a grassroots movement to end the surge in repressive attacks on women’s health and freedom. Learn what you can do to counter anti-choice fundamentalists coming to San Francisco on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January 2006.
Demands include:
 No on Prop 73! The Parental Notification Initiative on the ballot November 8 targets young women’s fundamental right to abortion and will especially impact low-income women and women of color if passed.
 Supreme Court justices and laws supporting a woman’s right to control her body! Expand civil liberties for all!
 Repeal the racist Hyde Amendment! Passed in 1976 and renewed annually by both Democrats and Republicans, this law bans funding for abortion for women in the military or on Medicaid.
 Universal healthcare, safe birth control, pre-natal care, and affordable childcare!
 Defend the clinics from right-wing terrorism!
 End forced sterilization abuse of women of color.
 End the war on women at home and abroad!

Featuring speakers, entertainment, performances, information tables, and art. At 19th and Dolores Streets in San Francisco’s Mission District. Initiated by the Bay Area Coalition for Our Reproductive Rights (BACORR).
Take Back the Night is a march to demand an end to violence against women. On November 5th we will be marching against gendered violence and to be able to walk the streets free from violence and criminalization. People of all genders are invited and encouraged to participate.
BACORR is a grassroots coalition with a long history that includes defeating the right-wing group Operation Rescue through organized clinic defense. In 2005, we continue to build independent political action, to mobilize highly visible direct actions and to expand our reproductive freedom and health liberation. BACORR is a multi-issue coalition composed of passionate, intelligent, all-inclusive individuals and groups active on all fronts of the struggle for freedom and equality for women, people of color, poor and working people, and people of all genders, sexualities, ages, and disability and immigrant status. BACORR sees reproductive choice as an integral part of a larger struggle for the liberation and self-determination of all people. Working towards our vision, we understand that we cannot depend on the courts or cops, nor rely on Republican or Democratic officials, to defend our rights. Instead, we need a mighty reproductive rights movement in the streets to achieve full liberation. Come fight back with BACORR!

BACORR meets regularly in SF and the East Bay. We welcome groups to join our coalition.
