Bans Off Our Bodies! Rally and March
May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Organized by Planned Parenthood California Central Coast for Saturday, May 14 at De La Guerra Plaza, this is part of a nationwide event that is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of protesters.
By this summer, 26 states could move to ban abortion — affecting 36 million women, plus more people who can become pregnant. The rallies will be “a demonstration of our collective outrage on the attacks on abortion nationwide and call for an end to abortion bans,” according to Planned Parenthood. “No abortion bans, PERIOD.”
“Our bodies are our own — if they are not, we cannot be truly free or equal. Across the country, some politicians are trying to make decisions about our bodies for us. We won’t let the abortion bans sweeping the country put our lives and futures at risk, and we won’t be silenced while our fundamental right to control our bodies is taken away. Everyone deserves health care that’s free of shame, stigma, or judgment. Together, we say: Get your bans off our bodies!”
