Rally on H.B. 235: Abortion

Today a rally was held at the Utah State Capitol by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU to lobby for a “no” vote to H.B. 235, the bill that originally would have banned abortions in Utah, but has now been reverted back to being a “trigger” bill.

The prevailing message was that women must retain the right to do what they want with their own bodies and the way to avoid abortions is by providing sex education (and not just abstinence) as well as legal and safe abortions if needed.

Pom Poms Not Bomb Bombs, Utah’s Radical Cheerleaders, of which I am a member, participated. Here is the appropro cheer we did:

2-4-6-8!
Women’s care is second rate!
That’s not decent in our state!
We want access not debate!
Uh-uh, uh, uh
2-3-4-5!
We will not apologize!
We are here to take a stand:
Birth Control On Demand!
Uh-uh, uh, uh
2-4-6-8!
We get to decide our fate!
Not the church, not the state;
We won’t be forced to procreate!
Uh-uh, uh, uh
