14.5.2022 – For Immediate Release
London – Democrats Abroad UK Chair Wen-Wen Lindroth will speak at the Abortion Rights UK rally in London today as a part of the global day of action – “Bans off our Bodies” – in response to the leaked U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The rally in London will start at 4pm Saturday May 14th in Parliament Square and end at the U.S. Embassy.
Wen-Wen Lindroth, Chair Democrats Abroad UK:
“Americans in the UK can take action by calling your Senators to say that we will not stand for turning back the clock on women’s ability to control our bodies. We urge you to let SCOTUS know that rolling back Roe vs. Wade – the landmark civil rights decision that has stood for 50 years – will be viewed as what it is: an effort to reduce women’s civil liberties and our rights to equality, dignity and privacy. Most importantly, you can and should vote Democrat this November – it is our right to determine the laws affecting our bodies, and our responsibility to preserve the gains for equality that previous generations have fought so hard to secure.”
