3/26 Protest in Raleigh for Access to Abortion Medication

Calling all UUs to Raleigh to Protest US Supreme Court Hearing re Oral Abortion Medication

Join UUs and people of faith in defense of medication abortion. On March 26th, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning Mifepristone and the FDA. Currently the majority of abortions are by medicine and use Mifepristone.
To protest the action of SCOTUS, NC people of faith will gather that same day on Tuesday, March 26th on the steps of the Terry Sanford Federal Building in Raleigh at 310 New Bern Ave., from 10-12:00. This rally is being organized by the Community Church of CH UU in collaboration with the Triangle Interfaith Reproductive Justice Coalition. Please bring a carload from your church/fellowship and bring signs. Here is rally info.
 
At the same time there will be a major protest in Washington D.C., organized by the Women’s March. Over 100 people are expected to be arrested on the 26th.
 
While Walgreens and CVS recently announced they will distribute this medication in their pharmacy as prescribed by the pharmacist, the SCOTUS is looking at limiting, if not banning, access to the medication. Mifepristone has been available and used for over 20 years.
 
I hope to see you there on the 26th. The eyes of history are upon us. Any questions, contact melvafokun@gmail.com.
