Supreme Court Overturns Roe V Wade:
Time To Take To The Streets!
Emergency Action Today
@ 5PM
Powell + Market, SF
Join us today at 5pm
at Powell and Market in SF to protest the Supreme Court decision to
overturn Roe — it is time to take to the
The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v Wade
thus putting a final nail in the coffin of legal abortion rights on
the national level. The only reason abortion rights were achieved was
because of the struggle of tens of millions of women demanding justice
in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. The people’s struggle will be the path
to win and secure abortion rights and all other rights once again.
Nine unelected judges, appointed for lifetime terms, should not have the discretion to eviscerate the rights of hundreds of millions of people in the United States. This institution makes a mockery out of the notion of a democratic society.
The Supreme court has declared war against women and our basic rights to control our own bodies. Now is the time to fight back. Millions of people going into the streets would make it clear that without justice there can be no peace. Neither the church nor the state has the right to tell women what we can do with our own bodies.
The Supreme Court should be abolished. The Supreme Court has demonstrated throughout history that it is an enemy of democracy and an enemy of people’s rights. It upheld slavery as a legal institution until the Civil War ended it. It made apartheid and segregation the law of the land in 1896 and today it is attempting to end abortion rights that were the consequence of the mass movement of millions of women and their allies in the 1960s and early 1970s. The Supreme Court today is also taking back voting rights for Black Americans, human rights for immigrants, and union rights for workers. Until the mass movement of the LGBTQ community forced the Supreme Court to change, it denied marriage equality and other basic rights.
Now is the time to fight back. Only a mass movement of the people can save abortion rights. Take to the streets throughout the United States.
Help us spread the word and join us today at 5pm at Powell and Market!
