Tacoma Protests the Abortion Bans

On Tuesday, May 21, several Tacoma residents gathered in front of the Federal Courthouse to speak out for women’s rights and to protect access to abortion.  I was incredibly proud to see such a strong turnout and meet some great people. Here are some photos from the event.

It is great to see so many young people involved in this fight.
But, the fact that this fight is still going on today is infuriating. Women deserve bodily autonomy.
Mothers understand the importance of protecting the right of autonomy for our daughters.
It’s our duty to ensure the next generation understands their rights and how to fight for them.
We can’t keep letting history repeat itself.
When abortion is illegal, women die.
The Raging Grannies were on hand to encourage us to speak up and sing out.
Here’s a closeup of some of the lyrics.
We can’t sit back and watch our rights be stolen.
When one group is attacked, it paves the way for other vulnerable populations to be attacked. The abortion bans are not about protecting life. The bans are about taking power away from women — just as other conservative policies are doing to immigrants, people of color, LGBTQIA individuals, low-income populations, and more.
If we want change, we must stand together.
We need to fight for human rights.
