Friday night’s announcement of the dismantling of „Roe v. Wade“, which has guaranteed abortion rights in the United States since 1973, cannot leave us unmoved. This announcement touches all women and reminds us of the extent of the conservative threat to women’s rights around the world. More than ever, we must defend the right to abortion!
Simone de Beauvoir said – and rightly so – that “women’s rights are never taken for granted. We must remain vigilant throughout our lives”. This sad announcement of Friday shows us that we must always advance the right to abortion because, as soon as we do not, it moves backwards.
Planning Familial, JIF and CID invite all those who are concerned about this issue to a sit-in on Tuesday, June 28 at 12:30 p.m. in front of the U.S. Embassy (in Luxembourg City)*.
Come and shout your anger and fight with us, for equality and for all women deprived of self-determination over their bodies and consequently over their reproductive, personal, social and professional future.
