Rally for Reproductive Rights on March 2nd
As you may have heard, last week — just one week before the Supreme Court hears the Texas case — the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted an emergency request by the state of Louisiana to allow a similar law to take effect, leaving Louisiana with only two abortion providers and forcing clinics to close or to stop offering abortion care. The Supreme Court can intervene to keep our clinics open.
On Wednesday, Lift Louisiana will join other advocates in New Orleans are coming together to show solidarity with the Rally to Protect Abortion Access at the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C. where thousands are expected to assemble at the U.S. Supreme Court as the Justices hear arguments in a critical case about abortion access in Texas that could affect Louisiana for generations to come.
