Our bus trip to the state house was featured in a local paper! Join us, we still have a few seats available

We have four seats left for our trip this Thursday – the bus picks up from three locations on the Cape and one in Plymouth.  Join us to lobby for the ROE Act.  Threats to women’s rights, privacy and health care are under attack and there is a serious threat that SCOTUS will begin cutting away at Roe v. Wade when they hear a case regarding Louisiana’s new law in the coming months, there is a sense this case may be successful and could begin chipping away at Roe v. Wade.
 We must let our lawmakers know how WE want them to vote!
Recently the Provincetown Independent did a story about our plans to join advocates from around the state on Thursday – see the story here “Threat to Roe v. Wade Spurs Outer Cape Women to Action; Lacking local access, but standing up for rights at state level

Join us to pass the ROE Act and protect abortion access in Massachusetts!

Book your $5 seat on the bus!

In many states, access to abortion is hanging on by a thread. Donald Trump and politicians like him are stopping at nothing to ban abortion. SCOTUS has agreed to take up a case out of Louisiana where a law was passed that restricts abortion access and was overturned by a Fed Court. The state asked SCOTUS to hear the case, and many predict that the law will be upheld 5-4.  See story here.

But in Massachusetts, we are pushing forward. We have been working hard alongside elected leaders who are championing the ROE Act—a bold piece of state legislation that not only re-affirms the right to safe, legal abortion, but guarantees it is accessible and affordable to all people.

We can do this – but we need you with us. Join us on November 14 and urge your lawmakers to pass the ROE Act.

We will meet at the 32BJ SEIU Meeting Hall at 11 AM to hear from advocates and participate in a brief advocacy training before heading over to the State House to meet with lawmakers. See registration page for accessibility information.

Massachusetts has long been a leader in health care access and reproductive rights. Let’s work together to make this a decisive moment for reproductive freedom in the commonwealth and pass the ROE Act!

Will you join us in protecting our reproductive rights?

More about why the ROE Act in Massachusetts:

We know that this reproductive right already has been essentially denied in many states across the nation, and many mistakenly believe that here, in MA, we are lucky not to be affected by these restrictions. But did you know, that even here, our reproductive rights are at risk? If Roe v. Wade were to fall, MA would revert to laws written in 1974, literally taking us back in time? These more restrictive laws use medically inaccurate and inflammatory language, and impose restrictions such as waiting periods and onerous reporting requirements for doctors.

The ROE Act would prepare us in the event Roe v. Wade is repealed by changing this outdated language and expanding the abortion rights of women in MA, solidifying rights here in the event the Supreme Court tries to repeal them. The ROE Act would stop the discriminatory practice of barring those who use public funds from obtaining abortion, would protect young people seeking abortion, and compassionately allow abortion after 24 weeks in the cases of fatal fetal anomalies.
