International Women’s Day: Abortion Rights & Anti-Porn Protests

In light of the continuing Christian fascist assault on women

Support International Women’s Day, Protest and Car Caravan throughout Los Angeles

12 Noon – Rally at Her Clinic, 2502 S Figueroa St. (& Adams)
Support abortion providers. March 10th is Abortion Provider Appreciation Day! Oppose the anti-woman, anti-abortion picketers who harass women at this clinic. 2011 saw the largest spate of legal restrictions on abortion since Roe v. Wade in 1973. ALL THIS MUST BE STOPPED! Fetuses are not babies. Women are not incubators. Abortion is not murder.
2 PM – The Archdiocese of Los Angeles, 3424 Wilshire Blvd. (1 block east of Normandie) The Catholic Church’s approach to women, gender, science and sexuality – like that of many religions – is a Dark Ages disaster! The Pope has condemned condoms (causing millions of HIV/AIDs deaths). The Church condemns homosexuality and insists that “divorce is a sin” (contributing to women staying in abusive marriages). Recently, Catholic Bishops urged “non-compliance” with new regulations requiring health insurance to cover birth control!
4 PM - Hustler Store, 8920 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood.
Stop the brutality against women in the name of free speech! In recent years, pornography has become increasingly violent, cruel, degrading towards women; women are referred to as “cumdumpsters” and “fuckbuckets”; the “money shot” (ejaculation in a woman’s face) is standard; humiliating cruelty-like violent “ass-to-mouth” penetration-is normalized, and racist bigotry is sexualized. Meanwhile, the broader culture has been pornified: pole dancing is taught at gyms, “sexting” is a national phenomenon among teens, and the strip club is the accepted backdrop to “male bonding.” All this is tied in with, and reinforces, the trafficking of millions of women and girls as literal chattel in the international sex industry. This is NOT society becoming more comfortable with sex. This is society becoming saturated with the sexualized degradation of women. Women are not objects. Women are not things to be used for the sexual pleasure of men NOR are they breeders of children. WOMEN ARE HUMAN BEINGS CAPABLE OF FULL EQUALITY IN EVERY REALM!
