March To Oppose The War On Women In Texas And Across The Nation In Austin On April 28

Above you see the flier for the War on Women march to be held in Austin on April 28.

Here is the website for this march.

You see that the flier references the Texas forced sonogram law.  This law is state-mandated rape.

Here is the text of a letter I co-wrote asking Amnesty International asking that organization to investigate the forced sonogram law.

There is also a local event as part of the lead-up to this march.

Here are details of this event—

Nationally and locally, legislators have launched an assault on women’s reproductive rights and access to health care. In Texas this has resulted in as many as 300,000 women losing health care due to political ploys in Austin, and our state politicians voting to force women to undergo humiliating vaginal probes before making reproductive choices. 

In Houston, join us for a discussion on the state of women’s rights in Texas and nationally, the upcoming War on Women march in Austin (http://www.wowtex.org/) and how we can fight back.

Rodeo Room, Second Floor of University Center, University of Houston Main Campus. Wednesday, April 25 at 7 PM. 

Here is the Facebook page for this discussion.

The work of freedom is up to each of us and the fate of all people is connected.

We’ve got to look out for one another and fight for one another. That is the only way we all get a fair deal in our nation.
