This week a sign promoting an event called «ABORTION IS GENOCIDE: FIND OUT WHY» disturbed the halls of Portland State University.
Join us on October 14th in countering this sexist and racist claim and demanding that any person with a uterus has a right to decide what they do with it.
We support reproductive justice for everyone, whether this looks like the right to have children and not be sterilized against your will, or the right to abort an unwanted fetus. We also recognize that while the right violently targets women in its effort to destroy all access to abortion, the fight for safe, accessible, and affordible abortions is not only a «women' issue.» We know that medically sound and respectful abortions are especially unavailable for trans, intersex, bi-gendered, and gender non conforming people with uteruses, who are all seriously impacted by lack of access to abortion and so this also needs to be talked about and be part of our demand.
Come out Saturday to show PSU and the community that bigotry and sexism will not be tolerated! My body, my choice! Their body, their choice! Reproductive justice for all! Everyone has a right to bodily-autonomy! and Abortion is NOT genocide!
Please stay tuned for details. We will be hosting a planning meeting on Thursday October 12th. If you have ideas please join us at that meeting at 7pm in Fourth Avenue Building Room 10
