We received this message for Chicago-area friends of Stop Patriarchy. We urge you to support this important rally. If you are on Facebook, please join the event there and invite friends!

In the face of a gunman's deadly attack last Friday on the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, I urge Chicago-area friends to respond by joining in the important rally called by our friend, Benita Ulisano and sponsored by "Support Legal Abortion:"

TUESDAY DECEMBER 1 
4:30 PM 
Corner of State and Jackson, Chicago
SOLIDARITY EVENT TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR ALL ABORTION CLINIC PROVIDERS, STAFF, AND CLINIC ESCORTS!

Wear your heart on your sign as we stand with Planned Parenthood and all Independent Clinics! 
ABORTION CLINIC TERRORISM MUST STOP NOW!!

Sunsara Taylor, the initiator of Stop Patriarchy and writer for Revolutionnewspaper, called Friday for emergency demonstrations for Abortion Rights and Women's Lives, which were held Saturday in NYC, SF, LA, Seattle. Sunsara's call:
"Everyone who cares about women's rights and lives needs to stand up against the vicious violent assault on the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs on Friday 11/27/15, and beyond that the whole assault on women's rights to abortion and birth control. Across the country, providers of abortion have faced escalating legal restrictions, increased harassment, and violent assault. These attacks have grown over decades, and escalated at a startling rate in recent years and months. Before Friday's attack, 8 providers of abortion have been murdered, most recently in 2009 with the murder of George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas. Many scores of clinics have been attacked, bombed, invaded, and destroyed.
"State legislatures all over the US have put the right to abortion, and birth control, on the firing line and the Supreme Court itself plans to make a major ruling this Spring. Whether these attacks on women's right to abortion come through laws or through extra-legal violence, the result is the same: they deny women the fundamental right to control their own bodies, reproduction, and lives. These attacks are illegitimate. Fetuses are NOT babies! Abortion is NOT murder! Women are NOT incubators. Women are full human beings, they are half of humanity. Their rights and their lives MUST be defended. NOW is the time for everyone who cares about women, who opposes Christian fascist violence and theocracy, who believes in justice, to defend the clinics, and to stand up, demonstrate and declare:
ABORTION ON DEMAND AND WITHOUT APOLOGY.
ABORTION PROVIDERS ARE HEROES. 
FORCED MOTHERHOOD IS FEMALE ENSLAVEMENT."
I'm looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
warmly,
Martha in Chicago
