March to Defend Reproductive Rights
On October 2, there are marches in every single state ahead of the Supreme Court reconvening on October 4. Join the Manatee March. Send a message to the Supreme Court and Manatee County Commissioners.
Abortion has never been fully accessible, but we are at the risk of losing our reproductive freedom completely. Women’s Voices of SW Florida is hosting a March for Reproductive Rights on October 2, 2021, at 11AM at Rossi Park, 452 3rd Ave W, Bradenton, FL 34205. Sarasota’s march will now be held together in unity with us in Bradenton.
For anyone who isn’t aware, Manatee County is now leading Florida in the pursuit of adopting an ordinance that mirrors Texas’ Senate Bill 8. The same bill that was enacted in Lubbock, TX in May of this year, that allowed Texas to enact anti-abortion law statewide in September.
We cannot allow Manatee County to pass this ban, and be the foothold for Florida to revoke access to safe abortion state-wide.
This is intended to be the largest march in SWFL, we are putting the pressure on our local legislators to STOP the pursuit of anti-abortion ordinance in our state. We are inviting all surrounding municipalities to join us and march in solidarity against these bans and in defense of our reproductive freedom.
Send a message to the Supreme Court, in Manatee County and lawmakers across the country a clear, unified message. The attack on our reproductive rights will not be tolerated.
