Vol. 1, Issue 2 - This Church Harasses Women.
Manhattan leads a group of parishioners to Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Center to harass and intimidate patients. On February 3, we’re going to show up, too. Help us to mobilize a visible, vocal, and unapologetic defense of abortion. The Facebook event is here, please join us! We’ll greet you with love and empowering slogans.
We’ll be talking strategy and logistics at our organizing meeting tomorrow, January 25, at Mayday Space in Bushwick; all are welcome.
Cool, hi, thank you for reading! Onward.
Vol. 1, Issue 1 - All the Abortion News That’s Fit to Email.
I signed up for a daily Google Alert for the word “abortion” a few weeks ago. The amount of rightwing clickbait I receive every day now has been... instructive. Can conviction be measured the sheer volume of articles smearing Planned Parenthood and wringing hands about baby parts? If so, the left has lost this war, or doesn’t care to fight. If not: in 2018, we need to read and circulate more rigorous writing about abortion that calls for no less than free abortion on demand. That’s why we’ve started this newsletter.
For our first issue, we look back at some of the big stories about abortion that guided our activism in 2017, a year in which we outnumbered anti-choice protesters ten to one; made the case for a rigorous clinic defense strategy; defended the Planned Parenthood on Bleecker St. and Bronx Abortion twice, and hosted numerous filmscreenings and panels.
