Our UU Faith Upholds Truth, Education and Human Rights.
“Earlier today 6/24, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down its decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson case. The final opinion effectively overturned Roe v. Wade and eliminated federal protections for abortion. Each state will now be able to independently regulate abortion, with at least 26 states poised to entirely ban abortion care beginning immediately.
We weep for the millions of people and families that will be harmed–physically, spiritually, financially, and emotionally–because of this decision. We mourn that this ruling rolls back many decades of advances for reproductive health, rights, and justice.” From UUA “Side with Love”.
“Join Long Beach Resister Sisters and LB/OC Women Rising at the courthouse steps as we raise our voices today 6/24 at 6:00 pm, the day the Supreme Court announced their decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Due to the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on May 2nd, we knew that the court planed on dismantling our constitutional protection for abortion. That would throw out nearly 50 years of precedent set by Roe v. Wade — the decision that established our constitutional right to abortion in 1973.
Long Beach Resister Sisters and LB/OC Women Rising will gather at the courthouse steps in Long Beach not only to demonstrate that people still support abortion access, but to show that folks won’t back down. Our movement will continue to help people access care, no matter what.
There will be a table with poster board and markers to make signs when you arrive.
It is encouraged that event participants to wear masks and practice social distancing.” From Long Beach Resister Sisters and LB/OC Women Rising
