Pro-Abortion Organizations Teaming Up for Nationwide Protests to #StopTheBans on Tuesday
A slew of pro-abortion organizations are teaming up for nationwide protests against the wave of pro-life legislation popping up to challenge the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.
The protests are being set up by a coalition of organizations including the ACLU, All* Above All Action Fund, EMILY’s List, Indivisible, MoveOn, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, UltraViolet, and Women’s March.
The organizations are calling for people to protest at statehouses, town squares, and courthouses across the nation at noon on Tuesday.
They're coming for women.
They're coming for doctors.
They're coming for Roe.
But we're the majority—and we're NOT going back. Join us, @MoveOn, @IndivisibleTeam, @PPact @ACLU, and more in the streets on 5/21. Find a #StopTheBans event near you: https://t.co/G4OqYZwl5F pic.twitter.com/sE8fP14NeV

The website claims that “this is Trump’s anti-choice movement… and it’s terrifying, particularly for women of color and low-income women who are most affected by these bans.”
The protests have been promoted by many influential Democrats, including 2020 Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.
If you’re angry about right-wing Republicans’ plan to reverse Roe, now’s the time to get organized and fight back. https://t.co/aYwXjPa0iq
