From January 22-27, the Feminist Majority’s Million4Roe Campaign along with the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliances (FMLAs) will coordinate One Million Voices, a nationwide week of reproductive rights activism. Campus and community groups throughout the United States will conduct pro-choice actions and host events to raise awareness of the impending threat to Roe v. Wade, the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion in 1973. Currently, legal abortion hangs by a razor-thin 5-4 margin in the Supreme Court. If one or more Supreme Court justices retires, anti-choice President Bush will have the opportunity to pack the Court with anti-abortion Justices, relegating women to the days of back alley abortions.
Already, events are planned in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, and more. To find out about events in your area, or to plan a One Million Voices event, log on to the One Million Voices website: www.OneMillionVoices.com.
