Get Out Your Pink Pussy Hats – National March for Women’s Reproductive Rights Scheduled for October

By Lori Perkins



Women and allies throughout the United States are enraged at the passage of the Texas law that outlawed abortion throughout the state six weeks after conception and placed a $10,000 bounty on the heads of anyone who had aided a patient in obtaining a so-called “illegal” abortion, effectively overturning Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court case that had legalized abortion in the United States since 1972.


In response, The Women’s March, which organized the largest single day of protest in the nation’s history in response to the election of Donald Trump in 2017, is planning a nationwide day of rallies in all 50 states in support of reproductive rights for Saturday, October 2nd, two days before the Supreme Court reconvenes for its new term.

As of yet, no specific details have been announced for the individual rallies, but those interested in attending can go to the website at womensmarch.com to sign up for information.


The January 2017 Women’s March in Washington D.C. drew approximately 500,000 people. As many as 5 million marchers participated at rallies across the United States, including another 500,000 in New York City and as many as 750,000 in Los Angeles. Supporting events were held across the world.

Let’s make this one even bigger!
