Pro-Choice Activists to March for Abortion Rights on Jan. 15

Posted by Admin On January - 10 - 2017

Event created by Chicago Campaign to Expose Crisis Pregnancy Centers

 

The event will be held Sunday, January 15, 2017 from 1 P.M. to 3 P.M. at Dearborn & Adams, Chicago. Feminist activists will gather at 219 South Dearborn, on the doorstep of the federal courts in Chicago, demonstrating their commitment to defend reproductive justice – including access to birth control, abortion and other reproductive health care, funding for Planned Parenthood, as well as the right and access to the means to raise children by choice.

 

The event is co-sponsored by Midwest Access Coalition, Clinic Vest Project and Shout Your Abortion.

 

This year’s event aims to protest the incoming Trump/Pence administration’s anti-woman and anti-choice agenda. Trump has vowed to appoint a pro-life Supreme Court Justice and favors punishing women and abortion providers should abortion become illegal. At the same time, Congress is swiftly moving to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides critical healthcare to those in need.

 

According to organizers, “As we march on Sunday, the anti-choice March for Life demonstrators will gather in Federal Plaza claiming to stand for “life” when they in fact oppose urgently needed health care, education, contraception, and liberties for women, LGBT people and parents of all genders. The mission of the anti-choice movement is not to save lives, but to terrorize, control, threaten and punish women who seek to control their bodies and fate.”

 

The March for Abortion Rights is a counter-protest to stand up to this anti-choice agenda, and to demonstrate that we won’t be silent when our rights and freedoms are under attack.
