Take to the Streets and Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights
Week of Resistance May 8-14, 2022
To all people of conscience, all social justice organizations and freedom fighters, all pro-choice organizations and leaders, everyone who cares about women and LGBTQ people, everyone who does not want to see the state to force anyone to bear a child against their will, everyone who cares about the lives of Black people and other people of color, all who worry for the present political, social, and environmental reality, and all who are concerned for the future:
The end of Roe v. Wade would be one of the most significant reversals of a fundamental human and civil right in this country’s history.
If you care about women and girls… if you refuse to inherit, or pass on, a world that is hurtling backwards. Get organized and spread the word to friends, family, and other networks. NOW is the time to rise up, together, as if our lives depend upon it—for, in fact, they do.
The reversal of abortion rights would do immeasurable harm to generations of women and girls and everyone who can become pregnant. It would strengthen and accelerate the escalating attacks on contraception, on LGBTQ rights, on voting rights, on the lives and true history of Black people and other people of color, on immigrants, and many more. Acquiescing to this loss, rather than fighting now to defeat it, would also contribute to the dangerous dynamic where people will be forced to adjust to and “work within” greater and greater atrocities.
Rise Up! Take non-violent action! Wear Green, the international symbol of abortion rights.
