The U.S. Supreme Court is reviewing a Mississippi 15-week abortion ban case while it has allowed Texas to outlaw abortion after just six weeks and empower vigilantes to enforce its ban. All are designed to roll back if not overturn Roe all together. If this happens, we could see a world far worse than before Roe, as an emboldened right wing mobilizes to assault all reproductive rights and our control over our bodies and lives.

How can we mobilize the majority that still defends Roe? Polls show that upwards of 70% of Americans are for upholding Roe, yet many do not realize how in danger we are of Roe being overturned.

Episode 84 of The RNL—Revolution, Nothing Less!—Show

Click here to watch video
2022: A New Year... And the Possibility For Something
Truly Emancipating... IF WE FIGHT FOR IT!

SEASON 3 PREMIERES a week after the one year anniversary of the failed attempted coup carried out by Trump and the fascist mobs at the U.S. Capitol... and as the Fascist Republican Party prepares to re-seize power through rigging elections... and unleashing violence if necessary. Many see the dangers but do not see the unprecedented openings for revolution within this changed political situation. But in order for something positive to come out of all of this, YOU need to step into and join in fighting for this revolution now! In this first episode host Andy Zee sharply lays out the stakes of this historical moment, a rare time when revolution could become possible in the U.S., all of which is informed and guided by Bob Avakian's latest deeply scientific work: "Something Terrible, Or Something Truly Emancipating..." Co-host Sunsara Taylor then goes into a crucial new initiative that she is undertaking around defeating and beating back the attacks on abortion rights and the work to unite very broadly people of different perspectives to accomplish this, while herself taking this up in a way that advances the cause of real revolution and the emancipation of all humanity. And we'll feature a powerful excerpt from Bob Avakian's 2018 talk, where he addresses the need to struggle hard and win many among the most oppressed to "raise their sights" to revolution and emancipation.

 Defend Abortion Access!

Saturday, January 8, 12:30 pm
219 S. Dearborn, Chicago
Facebook event to "join," invite, share if you are on FB.

The Supreme Court and the Republican Party are systematically overturning our Constitutional right to determine when and if we want children and empowering vigilante bounty hunters to enforce their draconian laws. That is happening in Texas right now, other Republican controlled states are following suit, and it has everything to do with their fascist agenda for the future.

This Saturday, January 8, that future will be on full, ugly display at Federal Plaza when religious bigots and their political friends celebrate what they hope is the approaching end of abortion access in this country. Join us to peacefully counter their so-called "March for 'Life" with our determination to "Defend Abortion Access" at this critical moment.

Refuse Fascism Chicago Chapter is part of a growing coalition of groups that are not "waiting to see" what the fascist-dominated Supreme Court does, or hoping "someone up there" will save us. We understand that only determined resistance won the right to safe, legal abortion, and only determined resistance will save it. We will not cede the public square to the lies of these Christian fascists! We will not abandon millions of women who are already suffering horribly because they have lost access to abortion or fear becoming pregnant without it. Join us to defend abortion access, to demand abortion on demand and without apology, and refuse a fascist America, in the name of humanity.

In a recent piece on Slate, Dahlia Lithwick explains why "We're Not Going Back to 'Before Roe.' We're Headed Somewhere Worse." In this interview, she discusses why with Sunsara Taylor on The RNL Show:
We're Not Going Back to 'Before Roe.' We're Headed Somewhere Worse
As horrible as the picture is that Dahlia and Sunsara paint, there is even more at stake in the battle to defend abortion rights. Charles Blow, writing in the NY Times, called this a "test case"
of whether states can simply take away what have been protected rights, as the Supreme Court has allowed Texas to do with SB8. If we allow this to happen, the targets will be "all the 'others': Black people, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, LGBTQ people and, yes, women, particularly liberal ones." Because this Supreme Court is now dominated by fascists and those are their targets. And there's even more at stake!

The Texas law banning practically all abortions also implements another novelty: relying on vigilante bounty hunters to enforce it, rather than authorized law enforcement. What will that look like in a time of when Kyle Rittenhouse is lionized at Mar-a-Lago and fascist conventions for murdering two unarmed Black Lives Matter protesters with his AR15? When gun regulations are under attack before fascist-dominated federal courts? The chilling effect will terrorize all women and anyone who would stand up to them.

This battle for the future is being joined now. Waiting for elections in eleven months will be deadly. NOW is the time to gather our friends and neighbors who also support abortion but don't understand how the battle has changed and why we must act now, and join us on Saturday, January 8, at 12:30 pm, 219 S. Dearborn (Federal Plaza), Chicago!
