Alabama Reproductive Rights Organizations Join Forces to Protest Abortion Ban

WHAT:

After the Alabama Senate voted to remove an amendment adding exceptions for rape and incest last Thursday, the Senate is now poised to pass HB314 when it returns to the floor on Tuesday, May 14.

Alabama reproductive rights organizations POWER House, Yellowhammer Fund, ACLU of Alabama, and Planned Parenthood are gathering with their supporters on Tuesday evening to protest this ban. This protest will happen regardless of how the Senate votes.

WHO:

Speakers from POWER House, Yellowhammer Fund, ACLU of Alabama, and Montgomery Area Reproductive Justice Coalition.

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 6 pm

WHERE:

Alabama State House, 11 S Union Street, Montgomery, AL 36106
