Abortion Rights Emergency!

Speakout & PROTEST

April 11 & 12

Abortion rights are in a state of emergency, and headed for disaster.  Already, women in this country who cannot access safe abortions are attempting to self-abort by inserting sharp objects in their vaginas, taking pills, asking their boyfriends to beat them up, and more. Others are being forced to bear children they do not want.  This is the future for women everywhere if this war on women is not massively resisted and defeated.

WE MUST ACT TO STOP THIS NOW!

Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement. Abortion On Demand and Without Apology.


Sat. April 12th  Protest!

2:00 pm: Assemble and orientation - NW corner of 49th St. & Fifth Ave. NYC

3:00 pm: Procession to St. Patrick's Cathedral

We will raise bloody coat-hangers* (representing the fate of women when abortion is illegal) and shackles (representing female enslavement). After an hour of silent protest, we will break the shackles and pledge to resist until we defeat and reverse these attacks and win Abortion On Demand and Without Apology and the full liberation of women.

This war on women will not go away on its own and will not be stopped by politicians or the courts.  We must take responsibility for resisting and defeating these attacks – the lives of women depend on what we do.

The Blood of Women is on Their Hands

Abortion on Demand & Without Apology!

GET INVOLVED: contact StopPatriarchy@gmail.com * StopPatriarchy.org

* Wire coat hangers were used by many women as an instrument to self-abort when abortion was illegal. 5,000+ women in the U.S. are estimated to have died every year from illegal, unsafe abortions before Roe v. Wade legalized abortions.
