Week of Action on 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

December 9, 2012 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us



For the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
Come to DC Jan. 20 - 26th

We Won’t Go Back!

Defeat the War on Women!

Abortion and birth control are fundamental rights. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement.

And if women – half of humanity – are not free, then no one is free.

Yet, forty years after the right to abortion was won, this right is hanging by a thread. Abortion is more stigmatized than ever before. Women are shamed and harassed for seeking abortions. Abortion is not available in nearly 90% of U.S. counties. Despite a “pro-choice” president, recent years have seen record numbers of anti-abortion restrictions across the country; 92 restrictions were passed in 2011 under Obama, shattering the previous record of 34 restrictions passed in 2005 under Bush. Doctors are stalked, terrorized and killed for providing abortions.

It is time to turn the tide.

Fetuses are NOT babies!
Abortion is NOT murder!
Women are NOT incubators!
