My Body/My Choice – March for Reproductive Rights
October 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
March to defend reproductive freedom.
The Women’s March will begin with brief remarks in front of City Hall. The speaker line-up is:
–Roberta Cordero will deliver our Chumash blessing
–CA Senator Monique Limón (our voice in Sacramento)
–Jenna Tosh, President and CEO Planned Parenthood Central Coast Action Fund
–Hannah-Beth Jackson will remind us why we march!
Arrive early to dance with World Dance for Humanity. Blessing will be promptly at noon. We will then march up State Street and end at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Wear masks, stay safely distanced, bring signs!
Rally will be live-streamed by TV SB on Facebook page of Indivisible Santa Barbara (please tell friends who cannot join us in person.)
The United States Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments in a case that has the potential to pose a serious challenge to Roe v. Wade. And in the midst of the current national wave of anti-choice laws, the USSC refused to block Texas’ law that prohibits abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually at 6 weeks and far before many women know they are pregnant. This attack on women cannot continue. Come to the March and show your support for women’s rights to control our bodies.
