CHICAGO – The LGBTQ community is sounding the alarm, saying the overturn of Roe Vs Wade could begin the process of dismantling the rights LGBTQ+ activists have accumulated over the past few years. In a fundraising letter, Stacey Stevenson of Family Equity calls for protests on May 14th to oppose overturning Roe vs Wade.
There's no indication if the protests will be as violent as the BLM and Antifa protests were in the Summer of 2020. However, cautions are growing in light of the emotion and rage the Left are demonstrating already since the Monday night leak about the Supreme Court's likely pending decision announcement.
Before the May 14th protest notice, Stevenson writes:
First: know that this decision is not final. Abortion remains legal, for now. But the draft indicates clearly that the Court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. This means if there were ever a time to make your voice heard, it’s now.
Second: of course this case is about access to reproductive healthcare first and foremost. And, this decision threatens long-standing Supreme Court precedent that makes up the foundation of freedoms like personal autonomy, privacy, and liberty that we’ve fought for the past 50 years to secure. It raises concerns about the Court dismantling other rights related to LGBTQ+ families, including marriage equality.
Third: No matter what happens, we will be fighting to preserve and protect those rights we fought so hard to win. In fact, we’re already fighting! Attacks against our families are happening right here, right now with hundreds of bills appearing across the country that seek to erase our existence in classrooms or deny LGBTQ+ youth and families their rights to things like healthcare. What we need now, more than ever, is action.
