That Texas law placing $10k bounties on the heads of people who aid abortion access—that law only enshrines the forced-birth vigilantism that already exists EVERYWHERE in this country, including NYC.

Here's a quick campaign recap:

May: the Archdiocese of NY announces that clinic invader Fidelis (Christopher) Moscinski will lead its "Witness for Life" clinic harassment not just in Manhattan but in Brooklyn, the Bronx, & Staten Island too

June: we counterprotest the "Witness for Life" at St. Paul & St. Agnes in Cobble Hill, just as we've done for years in Manhattan

July: we counterprotest; the Archdiocese runs a PR campaign against us in the National Review smearing us as "bloodthirsty" and wondering whether the NYPD needs to crack down

August: we counterprotest; the church calls the NYPD, who send in their militarized SRG (who brutalized BLM protestors throughout 2020) to crack down

September: we announce that we're counterprotesting again anyway; the church announces that they're canceling because they can't get a police escort this time (seriously). We flyer the neighborhood and the neighborhood turns OUT. Lines form down the block to sign our petition demanding that the church stop harassing patients. (Have you ever seen a line to sign a petition? In NYC??)

October 9: WE'RE COUNTERPROTESTING AGAIN.

The "Witness for Life" is forced-birth vigilantism. Fidelis Moscinski is one of the country's most active clinic invaders. And any church that comes to our clinics as if we're murderers (or the hapless dupes of murderous doctors), as if they have moral authority over us—that's the groundwork for more abortion bans, more clinic violence.

OUR STRENGTH AND SAFETY IS IN NUMBERS. Turn out, spread the word, bring a friend. We’re working hard to make this a safe, joyful action! 🌺💚

OCT 2: JOIN THE NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
FOR ABORTION JUSTICE

SATURDAY, OCT 2 we’re joining the national day of action for abortion rights

11:30 AM IN CADMAN PLAZA: we’re starting here. It’s right up the street from where clinic invader Fidelis Moscinski leads clinic harassers from the church to the door of Planned Parenthood—with an NYPD escort. We’ll have a table set up where you can sign our petition demanding that the church stop doing that.

2 PM IN FOLEY SQUARE: then we’re marching over the bridge to Foley Square up to Washington Square Park where we’ll converge with other marches 

Join comrades at Left Voice in WSQ for banner painting the day before (Friday, 5 pm)

TIME TO TEAR THE NATION’S EYES AWAY FROM ITS FETAL FANTASIES TO LOOK AT US INSTEAD. We’re the ones who have abortions. We’re the ones who matter.
