As Judge Temporarily Blocks Kansas Anti-Abortion Law, Defiant Protests—and Clarity on the Truth about Abortion—are Needed More Than Ever!


June 27, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


On June 26, a judge blocked the second-trimester abortion ban that was set to go into effect on July 1 in Kansas. This is a positive development, and it is also possible that the Texas clinic closures of all but 9 clinics in the state will receive an emergency stay before July 1, sending the case to the Supreme Court (No update to report on the Tennessee clinic closures effective July 1. To see the nationwide scope of attacks, see Stop Patriarchy's Abortion Rights Fact Sheet.)

It is outrageous and the sign of an illegitimate system that the simple question of whether women are full human beings who have the right to decide whether or when to have children is even up for debate. It is dangerous and degrading that women's humanity is being measured against that of a fetus. But the fact that this battle is currently going through twists and turns in the courts is ALL THE MORE REASON and the perfect time for mass resistance. We are done taking this patriarchal shit! Get yourself to one of the National Abortion Rights Protests on July 1 or call an action where you live. Join with Stop Patriarchy for a whole summer of Taking Patriarchy By Storm.

"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."
