Because the Supreme Court is anticipated to overturn abortion protections next month, reproductive justice groups are calling for people to take to the streets to indicate their support for abortion access for all.
Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, UltraViolet and MoveOn are organizing “Bans Off Our Bodies” rallies on May 14th in dozens of cities, from Recent York and Chicago to Los Angeles and Austin.
“Our country is facing an abortion access crisis,” the Planned Parenthood Motion Fund website says. “Politicians haven’t any business in our personal medical decisions — they shouldn’t control our bodies or our lives.”
Last Monday, Politico reported on a leaked draft Supreme Court opinion showing the conservative-majority court poised to overturn the landmark, decades-long abortion protections of Roe v. Wade.
Abortion stays legal in all 50 states for now.
