On October 2, San Luis Obispo community joins thousands across the United States to rally and march for reproductive justice. When the Supreme Court rejected an emergency request to block Texas’s abortion ban, they effectively took the next step towards overturning Roe v. Wade. Simply put: We are witnessing the most dire threat to abortion access and reproductive healthcare in our lifetime.
That’s why people are marching in every single state and in our nation’s capital Washington, DC. We need to send an unmistakable message about our fierce opposition to restricting abortion access and overturning Roe v. Wade before it’s too late.
