Monday, July 9, 2018: The Supreme Court

"67% of the American public do not want Roe v. Wade overturned." -Heather Booth

Protestors outside the Supreme Court, July 9th

Can Roe be saved? Is there life for unions after Janus? And what about the Affordable Care Act? Veteran organizer Heather Booth says we can win if we don't give up the fight.  Booth was the founder of Jane, a collective which provided over 11,000 safe underground abortions between 1969 and 1973 in Chicago. She also founded Midwest Academy, which has trained 25,000 community and labor organizers over the past four decades.

"There is a path in stopping Trump's nominee," says Booth. Demand Justice, Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org, Refuse Fascism and The Center for Reproductive Rights are good sources of information. The Center for Reproductive Rights has up-to-date news about the fight to protect abortion rights all over the US and the world. Organize, act and vote. "Democracy and justice can still be the law of the land."-Heather Booth
