Abortion Is Not Genocide: Rally and Speakout

Saturday, Oct. 14th
PSU, Smith Student Union
4:30pm Sign-making in the Cafeteria
5:00-7pm Rally in the Park Blocks

This week a sign promoting an event called "ABORTION IS GENOCIDE: FIND OUT WHY" disturbed the halls of Portland State University. 

Join us on October 14th in countering this sexist and racist claim and demanding that any person with a uterus has a right to decide what they do with it. 

We support reproductive justice for everyone, whether this looks like the right to have children and not be sterilized against your will, or the right to abort an unwanted fetus. We also recognize that while the right violently targets women in its effort to destroy all access to abortion, the fight for safe, accessible, and affordible abortions is not only a "women' issue." We know that medically sound and respectful abortions are especially unavailable for trans, intersex, bi-gendered, and gender non conforming people with uteruses, who are all seriously impacted by lack of access to abortion and so this also needs to be talked about and be part of our demand. 

Come out Saturday to show PSU and the community that bigotry and sexism will not be tolerated! My body, my choice! Their body, their choice! Reproductive justice for all! Everyone has a right to bodily-autonomy! and Abortion is NOT genocide!

We will be making signs in the cafeteria at 4:30pm.
The rally and speakout will begin at 5pm in the PSU Park Blocks!
