Join NYC for Abortion Rights to defend access to abortion care! It is 40 Days for Life and the congregation at Old Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is gathering anti-abortion activists to march to Planned Parenthood on Bleecker Street. They are going there to harass and intimidate women to prevent them from seeking healthcare. From Kavanaugh at the Supreme Court to anti-abortion bigots at our clinics, we are going to be there every step of the way to protect the right of women and all pregnant people to control their bodies.

Throughout the #MeToo era, we have been witnessing the astounding and horrifying scale of sexual harassment and assault in this country. There is even more to be astounded and horrified about. Right now, all across the country, these acts of intimidation at our clinics are normal for women seeking healthcare. In fact, they happen under the guise of “peaceful prayer.” Come help us stop them!
