Rally for Abortion Rights: Counter-protest 40 Days for Life

Date: 
Wed, Oct 11, 2017 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

On September 15th anti-abortion activists from a group called Created Equal stormed three abortion clinics in MI, VA, and NM. They entered the clinics waiting rooms, handing patients roses in an attempt to talk them out of having their abortions, and refused to leave as a part of what they called a "Red Rose Rescue". This escalation in violent harrasment at our clinics is unacceptable. Antis are emboldened by a Trump administration and they not going away, but getting worse. These are our spaces, and our bodies and we will not stand for it.
