Ending Abortion Stigma Demonstration

Fri, 01/18/2019 - 12:32
Ending Abortion Stigma Demonstration

On the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark supreme court decision that legalized abortion, Planned Parenthood Generation will be hosting a demonstration in Red Square. The purpose of this demonstration is to raise awareness about the prevalence of abortion in the United States, and thereby reduce the stigma associated with this common and safe procedure. Images of individuals who have experienced abortion and their stories will be displayed while club members and volunteers hold signs in support of keeping abortion safe and legal in the United States.

If you would like to share your abortion story at this event, please send us a message.
