Bans Off My Body protest: SPRINGFIELD, IL

September 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

One of the most extreme abortion bans in the U.S. took effect last week in Texas. The law, known as SB8, bans abortion at six weeks, which is before many people even know they’re pregnant. The law also lets politicians, neighbors, and even complete strangers sue anyone who tries to help people access abortion after six weeks. This is a dangerous attack on our health and right to access abortion.

JOIN US THIS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 AT NOON TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE: BANS OFF OUR BODIES!RSVP at https://act.plannedparenthoodaction.org/events/bans-off-my-body-protest-springfield.

Join Planned Parenthood Illinois Action and our partners outside the Federal Courthouse in Springfield to support abortion access for all!

What’s happening in Texas affects all of us. While we are fortunate to have the Reproductive Health Act in Illinois, this Texas law sets a dangerous legal precedent and could inspire other states to pass similar laws and ban abortion.

Join us on September 10 and help us tell the world that abortion must remain safe, legal, and accessible for ALL!

We ask that attendees:

  • Wear a mask
  • Do not engage with counter-protesters
  • Join our mailing list to stay up to date on future actions:
