On December 1, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a challenge to Roe v. Wade that severely threatens access to abortion throughout the land. A decision is expected in early summer. Now is the time to build a powerful movement to confront right-wing opponents of reproductive freedom and show the justices that reproductive justice cannot be denied! On January 22, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, it is urgent to act, speak out, and educate about how abortion is a life-and-death health issue, a question of economic justice, and a basic human right. Join the movement to defend the right of women and all people to control their own bodies. We say: #StandForRoe #MyDecisionAlone
