Mass Meeting 11-30-15: On the Colorado Springs Shooting, A War on Women, Fascism on the Rise: The Resistance & Revolution We Need

Across the country, providers of abortion have faced escalating legal restrictions, increased harassment, and violent assault. These attacks have grown over decades, and escalated at a startling rate in recent years and months. Before Friday's attack, 8 providers of abortion have been murdered, most recently in 2009 with the murder of George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas.

These attacks are illegitimate. Fetuses are NOT babies! Abortion is NOT murder! Women are NOT incubators. Women are full human beings, they are half of humanity.
