For immediate release -
On Sunday 9/12/21 at 4pm, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett will attend an event with Mitch McConnell in downtown Louisville.
Locals will meet at 3pm to march along Broadway & 4th street to deliver a clear message for the powerful pair:
All communities need safe, affordable, and accessible abortions. Denying individuals and families reproductive freedom is an assault on our communities and we refuse to give up this fight.
During a pandemic, we should be fighting to be healthy and safe - not against one another and definitely not against our reproductive choices.
It is a reproductive injustice to sideline housing support, food security and accessible medicines during this time to focus on abortion bans! Cancel Rent and provide safe housing to prove you're prolife! Support reproductive justice now!
Advocates for reproductive rights across the country are fiercely vigilant and skeptical, wondering whether Justice Barrett's judicial legacy will promote the rule of law or pay back political deals struck behind closed doors in a court that is also increasingly working in the shadows.
Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates is deeply concerned that similar legislation will be introduced in the Kentucky General Assembly. The lengths that the Texas legislature has gone is unprecedented, dangerous and overwhelmingly harms Black and Latinx people, people with low incomes, and people in rural areas, who already face immense barriers to health care access. This is not the future we want for Kentucky.
Justice Barrett needs to hear Kentuckians saying, loud and clear, that the new Texas law is WRONG -- wrong for Texans, wrong for Kentuckians and women around the country. The Supreme Court needs to pull their heads out of the sand and protect our right to control our own reproductive lives.
