Milwaukee, October 29: Defend Abortion Access

Hosted by Milwaukee General Defense Committee

1428 N Farwell, Milwaukee, 2:30 P.M. (Affiliated Medical Services)

The Milwaukee General Defense Committee is calling for a counter-demonstration of the right-wing anti-abortion organization 40 Days for Life. 40 Days for Life “is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God’s power…to end abortion.” They attempt to steer patients away from accessing safe and legal healthcare with messages of shame, and divert them to non-medical religious “counseling.” They will be at Affiliated Medical Services on Sunday October 29 at 3pm.

We typically do not confront these people at clinics to reduce the stress level for patients who are attempting to enter the clinic. On Sunday October 29, however, the clinic will be closed, so we’ll be taking a stand for free, safe, on-demand abortion in our community. Join us to show that Milwaukee won’t stand for their messages of shame. Our bodies are our own!

Affiliated is in need of comfortable and warm clothes for patients. Mostly winter coats, but also sweatshirts, yoga pants/sweatpants, long t-shirts, and new socks/underwear. If you have anything to give, please bring it with you on Sunday!

The Milwaukee General Defense Committee is not affiliated with or sponsored by Affiliated Medical Services.

The General Defense Committee is the community self-defense arm of the Industrial Workers of the World. The Milwaukee IWW is a member-run union for all workers, a union dedicated to organizing on the job, in our industries. and in our communities.
