Abortion Rights Freedom Ride: Responding to the state of emergency & fighting to turn the tide!
Sunday, November 17, 4pm

Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement. Yet, we are on track for 2013 to be the 3rd year in a row with record restrictions on women's access to abortion. 97% of rural counties do not have an abortion provider, 5 states have only one abortion clinic, new laws are closing the doors of abortion clinics nationwide, abortion providers face unending harassment and threat and abortion is more stigmatized than ever.
Women are full human beings who must have the right - through unrestricted and unstigmatized access to birth control and abortion - to decide for themselves when and whether they will have children. For decades, a movement which calls itself "pro-life" has unleashed violence against abortion providers, shamed and humiliated women, and relentlessly restricted access to abortion, especially for poor women. We must wage a determined fight to TURN THIS AROUND.

Stop Patriarchy is calling for people from all over the country to contribute their voice, money, and time to support people going to Albuquerque, New Mexico from Nov. 15 to 17. A vote will be held on November 19 that could ban abortions after 20 weeks thereby shutting down two of the four doctors in the country who openly provide abortions for women who need them in the third trimester of pregnancy. Donate now (only 35 hours left to donate).
