Summer 2013: Stand Up for Abortion on Demand and Without Apology!

Today abortion is more stigmatized, more difficult to access and more dangerous to provide than at any time since it became legal 40 years ago. 97 percent of rural counties do not have an abortion provider. Several states have only one abortion clinic left, and 80 percent of clinics everywhere in the U.S. have experienced harassment, violence or threats. Having a "pro-choice president" has done nothing to slow these attacks: 2011 and 2012 saw record restrictions on abortion, and 2013 has already seen the most extreme restrictions ever. For example, on August 1 in North Dakota abortion will become illegal at about six weeks (before most women even know they are pregnant!).

Let us be clear: Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement!

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

When it comes to abortion, the only question is:

Will women be forced to bear children against their will, or will women have control over their own lives and destinies?

Stand up this summer to fight for abortion on demand and without apology!

Hunter College, NYC, April 25, 2013

People who care about women must get off the political defensive and stop fighting each new attack one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole thing. It is time to stand up nationwide to STOP these attacks on women's right to abortion and to DEFEAT the war on women.

Join in the National Day of Action for Abortion Rights in July and then travel from North Dakota, where the last abortion clinic in the state is facing extreme new restrictions, down to Mississippi where the last abortion clinic is facing laws that would shut it down. Keep checking StopPatriarchy.org for dates and details to be announced very soon.
