They write: "In a leaked draft decision, the right wing dominated Supreme Court is poised to completely overturn Roe v Wade. This means that abortion will be banned in 22 states, essentially overnight. The anti-abortion extremists want to roll back the clock on women’s rights and deny bodily autonomy to literally millions living in states with existing abortion bans. Biden and the Democrats have completely failed to protect abortion rights. Every women’s organization, socialist organization, and leftwing organization needs to immediately mobilize to stop the right wing’s anti-woman agenda.
But the right won’t stop at banning abortion in republican dominated states. If the leaked decision stands, it will provide the legal justification for overturning Obergerfell, the Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage. Ultimately, the right is organizing for a nationwide ban on abortion and broadening the onslaught of attacks on LGBTQ people.
It took a mass movement to win Roe, and it’ll take a mass movement to defend it! We need emergency coordinated protests THIS WEEK in every major city and town to kick off a sustained nationwide movement. Beyond protests, we will need mass meetings to plan next steps for the movement including direct action and even strikes. Fight back to defend abortion — join us this Tuesday, May 3 @ 6 PM at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle!"
