The Supreme Court is expected to release the finalized decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case set to overturn Roe v. Wade, any day now. SCOTUS is likely hoping that in the aftermath of the draft leak, an official decision will render the matter settled, and the right wing is certainly going to use that to try to convince people that it’s over.

We must show them that we do not take the decision as the final word on the matter, and that effectively outlawing abortion in two dozen states is not acceptable. We must demand the immediate passage of a national law protecting abortion, and the force of a mass movement has the potential to make that happen, just as it did in Argentina in 2020. 

Left Voice is proud to cosponsor a rally for abortion rights in New York City, scheduled for 7 pm EST on the day the decision is released. We will gather at 6:30 pm in Washington Square Park. 

Other cosponsoring organizations include CUNY for Abortion Rights, Socialist Alternative, NYC for Abortion Rights, Tempest Collective, Rank and File Action (CUNY), NYU-GSOC (UAW 2110), Starbucks Workers United (Astoria Blvd), Student Workers of Columbia (UAW Local 2710), the Blue School Union, Art Workers Inquiry, and Brooklyn Eviction Defense.

If your organization, union, or union caucus wants to join us in co-sponsoring this action, please get in touch at [email protected]

In a Win for Reproductive Justice, Michigan Voters Reject Abortion Ban

Michigan’s Proposal 3 restores some of Roe’s protections in a mass repudiation of the undemocratic Supreme Court. This is a win for abortion rights, but the movement for reproductive justice must demand more than what Michigan had under Roe.

The Antidote to Midterm Despair Is Socialist Feminism

Among feminists, many are driven to the polls by the attacks on reproductive rights and trans youth. But so many go to the polls reluctantly, for lack of another solution. The antidote to midterm despair is socialist feminism.

Florida Is Poised to Ban Gender-Affirming Care for Minors — We Need a Movement for Trans Lives

In the latest assault on trans youth, the Florida Board of Medicine voted to draft a rule to ban gender affirming care for anyone under the age of 18. This heinous attack must be fought back by a mass movement.
