I’m sure you’ve heard by now – on Monday night, the rigged, right wing SCOTUS opinion re: Roe v. Wade leaked– and it’s unconscionable. After 49 years of right wing plotting to control our bodies and strip away fundamental human rights, SCOTUS intends to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to restrict abortion access. Conservative states have started with “blanket bans” on abortion and it won’t end there. This broad ruling can also be applied to contraceptives, gender-affirming care, marriage, and other fundamental civil rights too.
We condemn this attack. It won’t be wealthy people who become pregnant that struggle to attain safe abortion care, but the poorest people, communities of color, and survivors of rape and incest. Members of the working class will be forced to seek unsafe and ever more costly measures to get critical care.
Abortion care is health care, and health care is a human right!
Let’s be clear – Abortion is your right – and it’s still legal. We are showing up before the right-wing justices on the Supreme Court finalize a decision. We are showing up to demand elected officials—in Congress and in state houses—take every measure to enshrine the right to reproductive healthcare for all.
Upon receipt of this news, hundreds of you flooded the streets last night. Lets continue to bring our rage, our hearts, our determination, to demand immediate action to protect abortion providers and people seeking abortions! On the same day as the leak, JWJ joined the Planned Parenthood-led Coalition to mobilize the fight back! Can we count on you to join JWJ mobilizing a rapid response? Sign up here!
