Bay Area Rejects Texas Anti-Abortion Law
Dozens of Pro-Choice Protests Hit Northern California, Along with Nationwide Actions
On September 1st, Texas’ anti-abortion law banning the procedure after about six weeks of pregnancy went into effect, despite the 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a constitutional right to this form of healthcare. Reproductive justice advocates in the San Francisco Bay Area are held major protests with the fate of Roe v. Wade and legal abortion on the line.

Two national days of action, October 2 and October 3, were both designated as days for street protests and informational zoom meetings. Activists said they will not stop after the weekend of actions but will continue with sustained protests to demand an end to the dangerous, escalating attacks on reproductive rights and freedoms in the U.S.
