Seattle Defends Abortion Rights!

The Republican Party and the Right are waging an all-out assault on the rights of women and LGBTQ people. The ultra-conservative majority on the Supreme Court opened the floodgates for Republican-dominated states to attack abortion rights. And they aren’t stopping there. Republicans are going after transgender rights, voting rights, workers’ rights, and more.

Just last month, 195 Republicans in the House voted against making access to contraception a federal law!  Additionally, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham introduced a NATIONAL ABORTION BAN BILL. And to top it off, the US Supreme Court’s new session starts this week, and one of the cases they’ll be ruling on addresses same-sex marriage.

We need to fight back!

To win bodily autonomy, abortion rights, and LGBTQ liberation, we need to build an independent multi-gendered, multi-racial, grassroots movement of everyday people and young people. That’s why it is so important that every organization and individual actively participates in this National Weekend of Action called by The Women’s March. We need a strong mass movement to beat back the Republicans and pressure Democrats to implement:

  • The Women’s Health Protection Act (which would legalize abortion nationwide, overriding state bans)
  • The end of the Senate filibuster
  • Expansion of the Supreme Court with pro-choice judges
  • Medicare for All, including:
    • Free, legal, safe abortions
    • Free contraception, birth control, & reproductive services
  • Affordable universal childcare & paid family leave
  • Living wages & affordable housing for all
  • Free gender-affirming healthcare
