Repro Rights Rally at the State Capitol

June 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

n Friday, The U.S. Supreme Court issued a shameful ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and dismantling constitutional protections for abortions that have been in place for nearly 50 years. The court’s ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case paves the way for anti-abortion politicians to ban abortions and criminalize essential health care in half of the states in the country, affecting 36 million people who can become pregnant. 

The ACLU of Colorado will not back down. We will fight this attack on the fundamental right of millions of people to decide if and when to have a child. You can join us in that fight.  

Gather with us, and our partners in the Colorado Reproductive Health Rights and Justice Coalition, on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol, Monday, June 27, at 6 p.m. to rally against the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe.

Abortion will not truly be accessible until everyone is able to get the essential care they need — in their own communities — in every state.  

Make no mistake: Politicians won’t stop here. Our rights and liberties are under attack like never before. Justice Thomas wrote in his concurring opinion, explicitly, that Griswold v. Connecticut, which grants the right to access contraception; Lawrence v. Texas, which invalidated the criminalization of same-sex intimacy; and Obergfell v. Hodges which granted the right to same-sex marriage, should all be overruled. 

Despite the courts allowing anti-abortion politicians to attack our fundamental rights — they don’t get the final say — the people do. Join us and raise your voice against this cruel decision to ban reproductive freedom for millions of people who can get pregnant.
