"Yesterday’s ruling by a Federal Appeals court that will immediately shut down abortion care at as many as 13 clinics in Texas is an outrageous assault on women’s reproductive freedom. Cast in devious disguise as a ruling for the safety of women; it is a very dangerous escalation of the right wing agenda to control women’s bodies and thus their lives. They have harnessed their forces to undo our freedoms and rights, to push us back to the dark ages.. Tell the patriarchs and woman-haters to get Out of Our Bodies, Out of Our Wombs. Now is the time for the mighty women and all our ally men to RISE."
