Reproductive Justice Groups Plan May 14 Rallies Nationwide To Support Abortion

    As the Supreme Court is expected to overturn abortion protections next month, reproductive justice groups are calling for people to take to the streets to show 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 New York and Chicago to Los Angeles and Austin.

    “Our country is facing an abortion access crisis,” the Planned Parenthood Action Fund website says. “Politicians have no business in our personal medical decisions — they should not 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 remains legal in all 50 states for now.
