Save the Date! Press Conference & Rally to Keep Abortion Legal

March 4 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join the Abortion Rights Coalition and a coalition of organizations for a Press Conference and Rally at noon March 4th, the day the Supreme Court hears oral arguments for June Medical Services V. Russo (formerly June Medical Services v. Gee).

At issue is the Louisiana law that would force abortion doctors to receive admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, which is difficult and unnecessary. Also, it is against precedent as a nearly identical law in Texas was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 2016 with Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. The Louisiana law would effectively shut two or possibly all three of the remaining clinics in the state.

In promoting and posting the event, please use the following hashtags: #MyRightMyDecision (national hashtag) and #ChiMyRightMyDecision (local hashtag). We also encourage anything referencing #AbortionRights.
