Who:

Planned Parenthood of Southern New England (PPSNE) and the CT Coalition for Choice

What:

Join the CT Coalition for Choice for #StopTheBans, a national day of action for reproductive rights, to stand with people in Alabama, Missouri, Georgia, and everywhere safe, legal abortions are under attack. This is a critical moment in the fight for reproductive freedom as politicians continue to attack our right to health care. Advocates will rally at the State Capitol in opposition to these extreme new abortion bans passed in statehouses across the country, which place the most severe restrictions on abortions in America since Roe v. Wade.  This is not what people in America want—and they won’t stand for it.
