Tomorrow: Rally at the Supreme Court for major abortion case


Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt, an abortion business's challenge to an admitting privileges requirement and safety regulations in Texas. We desperately need Justice Kennedy to rule in favor of the legislation. The lives of women and unborn babies alike depend on it.

There will be a ton of media outside the Court, and Students for Life of America is on a mission to make the pro-life generation impossible to ignore. The image of a sea of pro-life youth advocates bearing "Protect Them Both" signs, versus middle-aged abortion advocates and extremists from Stop Patriarchy, is sure to make an impression.

Here are the details:
1 – Come to the US Supreme Court (1st Ave NE, Washington, DC) THIS Wednesday, March 2nd, when the Court will hear the case, by 8am, where we will rally until Noon. Sign up here on Facebook and start inviting your friends.
2 – Bring your energy and your friends! We’ll have free signs for everyone!
3 – If you can't make it to the event please use #protectthemboth on your social media accounts to show your support.
The two nearest Metro stops are: Union Station (Red Line) and Capitol South (Orange and Blue Line).
This is the law against which Wendy Davis in Texas did her famous filibuster in Texas three years ago. It’s the same law that we rallied for in Austin and encountered an enormous number of pro-choice advocates rallying against it and screaming “Hail Satan!”
This law has the potential to not only protect women and their preborn babies but also close unsafe abortion clinics, like that of Kermit Gosnell. It is so important that we make our voices heard on Wednesday, March 2nd.
Some of the speakers plan to pray, so if you happen to be secular, please bring signs identifying you as an atheist, agnostic, etc. to counter the abortion advocates who will doubtless seek to frame common-sense abortion safety legislation as a church-state violation.
