Rally set for Reproductive Justice

The Arkansas Coalition for Reproductive Justice has scheduled its fifth rally for reproductive justice at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24 at the Arkansas State Capitol. It serves as a useful counterpoint to the annual anti-abortion rally held the next day at the Capitol.

The rally is a reminder that 1) abortion and contraception remain legal in the U.S. and 2) they are increasingly under attack, along with some ancillary services, by those who'd enforce their religious doctrine as law over others.

The rally is not only about abortion.

A postcard announcing the event says it is also about having or not having children and being able to raise children in safe environments; about full access to health services regardless of age, ability, race, gender, geographic location, sexual orientation or identity or socioeconomic status; age-appropriate, medically accurate sex education; and the right to make decisions about reproductive health free from shame, religious dogma and interference by politicians.

The group has a Facebook page.
