Stop Fake Clinics: A Pro-Abortion Picket Line

September 28, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

A big coalition — including and especially Reproductive Transparency Now — has come together for a Pro-Abortion Picket Line in downtown Chicago on at 5:00 pm on Thursday September 28th, to protest an anti-abortion fundraiser being held at the Union League Club.  Please RSVP on EventBrite and visit the Facebook event page.

That alone is reason enough to high-tail it down to the city, but even more important:  the funder we’re protesting is for the network of “crisis pregnancy centers” besetting us.  So come on down if you can.  Bring your friends, your favorite pro-abortion signs, and your outside voices.

If you’re not able to make it for the event itself, you can still help! Spread the word by sharing these recent posts from InstagramFacebook, and Twitter/X.

STOP FAKE CLINICS: A Pro-Abortion Picket Line
Join us at 5:00pm on Thursday, September 28th, to picket an anti-abortion fundraiser being hosted at the Union League Club of Chicago. Specifically, this fundraiser benefits Aid for Women, a network of anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs, or “Fake Clinics”) in the Chicagoland area.
The Aid for Women located in downtown Chicago is just one of at least 97 “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs) in the state of Illinois. CPCs are anti-abortion organizations, usually 501(c)(3) faith-based nonprofits, that target pregnant people with deceptive and misleading information in order to prevent them from seeking abortion care. Many of these CPCs also use “non-diagnostic” and pseudo-medical services to trick people into thinking that they are unbiased healthcare providers.
This fundraiser was hosted at the same location on September 28th last year, which is surely not a coincidence. September 28th is International Safe Abortion Day, a global day of action where abortion activists and advocates around the world stand in solidarity to fight for reproductive healthcare, maternal health, and unhindered access to safe abortions.
If you are living in or visiting the Chicago area and believe in full bodily autonomy for all people, then we need you at this event!  It is critical that we show the Union League Club of Chicago that they are supporting racist, sexist, anti-abortion bigotry by hosting this event every year.
The event’s co-sponsors include Chicago Abortion FundChicago for Abortion RightsChicago National Organization for WomenGay Liberation NetworkIllinois Choice Action TeamIllinois National Organization for WomenIndivisible EvanstonIndivisible IllinoisMidwest Access Coalition, Reproductive Transparency Now, and Stop Trans Genocide – Chicago.
