Bigger Than Roe, More Than Mifepristone Abortion Rights Rally

April 15, 2023 @ 11:00 am

Last Friday, a federal judge issued a ruling that would block access to mifepristone, a medication used in abortions, in every state.

The unprecedented ruling has the potential to strain clinics and providers across the nation who are already grappling with the effects of Roe v. Wade being overturned and abortion banned in states like South Dakota.

This is a key part of the strategy of anti-abortion extremists to effectively ban medication abortion in every state and ultimately outlaw all abortion care nationwide. 

If you’re angry and upset, we’re with you. If you’re ready to take action, we’re with you.

But this is bigger than Roe. It’s about more than mifepristone.

Those of us who care about reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy need to get engaged despite all the barriers in our way. The fight for abortion access is everywhere, from the ballot box to the legislature to the streets — and the time to be loud and mobilize is now. We can’t stay silent while our rights are attacked – and we won’t.

Join us to rally for our rights!


Want to make a sign for the rally? Bring your art supplies and your creativity to M.B. Haskett, 324 S. Phillips Ave., at 5 p.m. Friday. We'll meet on the back patio.


Other organizations participating in the rally include Planned Parenthood of South Dakota, Justice Empowerment Network, South Dakotans for Healthy Families, LEAD South Dakota, University of South Dakota Students for Reproductive Rights, Augustana HAPPY, Transformation Project Advocacy Network, Sioux Falls Pride and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
