This Church Harasses Women
February 3 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am
One year after NYC for Abortion Rights’ first action against “pro-life” protesters at Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Center, we’re taking to the streets again in support of women and all pregnant people who demand access to abortion without fear of being harassed or shamed.
Every first Saturday of the month, the Basilica of Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral leads a group of parishioners to the Planned Parenthood – Margaret Sanger Center to harass and intimidate patients. As women and Planned Parenthood patients, we will not let these zealots go unchallenged. Join us for a protest on Saturday February 3rd to stand up to these harassers at their church and say loud and clear that we will not stand for their bigotry.
In a secular state, religious extremists should not be allowed to stop people from receiving healthcare. If we want to keep abortion legal and keep patients safe, we need to mobilize a visible, vocal, and unapologetic pro-choice response wherever and whenever reproductive rights are under attack.
In the light of the #MeToo movement, our message is more important than ever. Forced pregnancy is a form of sexual violence. Let’s expose these anti-choicers for the harassers that they really are.
If you want to get involved, show up! We need you to help us stop this church from harassing any more women. Our strength is in numbers so please share widely!
