OCT 9: OUR FIGHT TO END CLINIC HARASSMENT
IN BK CONTINUES

We're building momentum in our campaign against forced-birth vigilantism in our own backyard! Join us this Saturday!

OUR BODIES OUR LIVES OUR LABOR OUR STREETS

We’ve been flyering to let community members know that St. Paul and St. Agnes is impersonating clinic escorts, stigmatizing abortion, and allowing a guy who’s been invading and blockading clinics since the 90s to lead processions to the clinic doors.

When we flyer, the response from the community has been incredible. People line up down the block to sign our petition 💚 (have you ever seen people line up to sign a petition??)

Join our joyful counterprotest! Solidarity means acting like we all have skin in the game in the fight for reproductive justice. Because we do 💚💚

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

AN OPEN LETTER TO ST. PAUL IN BK: STOP HARASSING PLANNED PARENTHOOD PATIENTS

"More than two dozen times since 2017, as a member of the group Red Rose Rescue, Fidelis Moscinski has entered clinic waiting rooms to accost strangers and shame them into continuing unwanted pregnancies....

"But the truth is that even if Fidelis Moscinski were to stop leading these anti-abortion processions, the processions themselves have still got to go. They’re founded on two extraordinarily backwards and dangerous premises: that we’re murderers, or else that we’re the hapless dupes of murderous doctors; and that total strangers have the moral authority to intervene in our lives and healthcare decisions. In other words, your 'peaceful prayer' in front of clinics creates a culture of forced-birth vigilantism.

"This forced-birth vigilantism has now been enshrined in law in Texas, placing $10,000 bounties on the heads of anyone who facilitates abortion access—while actual, living people are immiserated by a country that has endless money to kill people abroad but none for universal healthcare. Stop coordinating clinic harassment, or at least be honest about your bedfellows: white nationalists and violent vigilantes....

"We are healthcare workers, restaurant workers, childcare workers, teachers, and community members who believe in reproductive freedom. Who are you? You’re a representative of a world-historically wealthy and powerful patriarchal organization. You can’t look away from the violent culture you’ve produced. You can’t smear us as the aggressors. Redirect your gaze from your lurid and unscientific fetal fantasies toward us: we are the living, breathing people who have abortions and benefit from them every day. We know what we’re doing. Stop showing up at our clinics and we’ll stop showing up at your church."
