Women's Rights Day Commemoration
Saturday, August 23rd , 2:00pm
NE Holladay St. & 11th Ave.
Rally for Reproductive Rights:
Stop the rightwing attack!
From the international "gag rule" on family planning agencies to the current attempt to pass the "Unborn Victims of Violence Act" , President Bush and his right wing cronies are waging a full assault on women's reproductive rights. In these pivotal times, it is essential to stand up in defense of a woman's right to choose. We demand:
• Bring back sex education
• Support human rights for all
• Universal health care now
• Affordable and safe abortion services for all women of all ages
• Insurance coverage for contraception
• State funded prenatal care for all mothers
• End forced sterilization
This rally is co-sponsored by Radical Women, PSU Women's Resource Center, and the Bolivarian Circle of Oregon. It is endorsed Freedom Socialist Party, It's My Pleasure, In Other Words Bookstore, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Socialist Party of Oregon, Woman Tree, Labor for Peace and others.
