Saturday: Abortion Clinic Defense at Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center

Filed under: ISO Events, Solidarity — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 1:22 am

Clinic Defense at Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center!

Please join New York Coalition for Abortion Clinic Defense (NYCACD) at Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center to support Women’s rights!

Dr. Emily’s clinic has been the target of anti-abortion protesters. These protesters offer free sonograms, (administered by unqualified people outside the medical field) anti-abortion pamphlets and display plastic fetuses in order to try to convince women seeking abortions to change their minds. Worse, the protesters plan to begin a 40-day vigil in late September, see This is the time to defend a woman’s right to choose abortions, and right now that means defending women’s physical access to the clinic. Join us to escort women into the clinic safely and protest those who try to coerce them away.
We have had a summer of successful defenses, but we need to keep building up the number of people involved so that we are ready for September. We would like to invite pro-choice and pro-abortion organizations to join our cause, and if possible to sponsor a shift.

Whether you are coming as an individual or as part of an organization, please RSVP. If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask them with your RSVP.
