STAND FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS
October 2, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 1:00 pm
Stand with Planned Parenthood in conjunction with the Women’s March organization, in support of our local PP clinic – returns to Ottawa on October 2nd to rally in support of reproductive rights.
Marches are being organized in every state two days before the Supreme Court reconvenes for the October term. The event was announced on September 2, the same day Texas’s new abortion legislation went into effect, banning abortions after six weeks and giving Texans the power to sue abortion providers. The Supreme Court voted to uphold the legislation in a 5-4 majority. Texas’s anti-abortion laws are now the most restrictive in the country.
We don’t say this lightly: we’re at grave risk of losing our reproductive freedoms. All of us need to fight back.
That’s why on October 2nd, in every state we Stand or March in solidarity with women everywhere.
Meet at the fountain in the middle of Washington Park at 10:30 AM.
Wear PINK & BLACK!!!!
We will stand united with signs, and our smiling faces. Please do not engage in any negative responses, as that is what the other protestors and some walking by will try to do. We reach people with positivity, the second we play into the negativity is the second we loose our message and those willing to listen to us.
The Admins of Stand with Planned Parenthood Ottawa thank you!
