Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation in a speakout to respond to the rash of illegal abortion bans and build the movement for reproductive justice.
Alabama has now banned abortion after 6 weeks in ALL cases. This follows the passage of abortion bans in 5 other states as well as over a decade of state-by-state laws to limit access to abortion. Reactionary forces hope to nail the final coffin in Roe v Wade and overturn the right to an abortion in the United States.
The right to abortion is a healthcare issue. 30,000 women still die every year from botched abortions because of bans and restrictions like those passed in Alabama and Georgia. 1 in 4 women in the United States will seek an abortion by the time they are 45. Abortion, like birth control and other forms of reproductive services, are healthcare procedures that should be free and universal to all people who can get pregnant.
The ONLY way we are going to confront the onslaught against reproductive rights is the mobilization and organization of a mass peoples’ movement. From Ireland to Poland, women have shown us this. Major mobilizations there have fought back against draconian anti-abortion measures-- and won.
Join us in the streets and build the movement to make abortion legal, safe, and free!
