Socialist Feminist Reproductive Rights Planning Meeting
May 21, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=27131
The Supreme Court made clear they plan to overturn Roe v Wade, which would enable most states in the country to ban the right to choose an abortion. Planned Parenthood and its allies have organized some protests, which we mobilized for, but Planned Parenthood’s message is often just “vote for Democrats,” which has proven insufficient for stopping this threat to our rights.
The Democrats currently control the White House, House, and Senate, and they failed twice to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify Roe v Wade into law. Obama promised to pass similar legislation but failed to deliver, despite having a filibuster-proof majority in Congress.
Nor have the Democrats exercised their power to expand the Supreme Court to put a progressive majority on the court.
These are just some of the reasons why we need to build the socialist working-class wing of the feminist movement and attract more people to join DSA.
Sign up HERE to get notified about upcoming socialist feminist activities and to receive the Zoom link for this meeting! Please mark your calendar and invite friends. We will discuss and organize the next steps for our work. Ideas so far include mobilizing and preparing for more protests, a public meeting, and a fundraiser for abortion access.
