Revolutionary abortion rights group Stop Patriarchy to protest pro-life laws in several states
The communist revolutionary group Stop Patriarchy is calling for “national actions” on July 1st to “protest new abortion restrictions scheduled to go into effect in Kansas and Tennessee that day.”
According to the group’s website:
On July 1st, as many as half the abortion clinics in Tennessee are expected to close due to new restrictions which will require abortion facilities to meet the same physical standards as a mini-emergency room (even though early abortion is an extremely simple, outpatient procedure).
They also state:
These new restrictions are part of a national onslaught against abortion rights and birth control. Over 330 restrictions have been introduced nationwide already this year! This CANNOT be tolerated if women are going to be treated as FULL HUMAN BEINGS! These laws will have devastating effects on the lives of women across the country, and especially in the deep South, where new restrictions have forced many abortion clinics to close.
A Fact Sheet put out by the group entitled: Abortion rights are in a state of emergency, and headed for disaster, reads in part:
For far too long, pro-choice people have remained passive, or funneled their energies into supporting politicians who openly promise to seek “common ground” with Christian fascists. But seeking “common ground” has really meant ceding ground to this whole onslaught. For decades we have watched yesterday’s outrage become today’s “compromise position” and tomorrow’s limit of what can be imagined. There can be no “common ground” with female enslavement. What is required instead is: massive, uncompromising, political resistance to STOP this whole WAR ON WOMEN, and go on to WIN the ﬁght for full liberation.
Bragging on their website, “As politicians continue to ramp up a national assault on abortion and birth control, Stop Patriarchy is unleashing the rage and frustration of old and new generations, forging a new political force of opposition while recasting the terms in the fight over abortion around women’s enslavement or women’s liberation.”
The group is headed by Communist sympathizer Sunsara Taylor, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party, receiving the support of convicted terrorist Bill Ayers. Their methods and tactics have even been denounced by more mainstream pro-choice advocates.
Stop Patriarchy is very selective in their outrage against the “Patriarchy.” While they disrupt pro-life events they enthusiastically support abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood which deliberately cover child rape and myriads of abortion “providers” who sexually abuse or physically harm their patients.
Abortion activists have been activating since Texas passed a series of pro-life laws in the state which have closed several abortion clinics. During this time, pro-abortion radicals descended in Austin to express their outrage.
Stop Patriarchy was among them, blocking traffic and getting arrested there as well.
Since then many other states have since passed similar legislation.
According to Life News, weeks ago Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed into law a pro-life bill HB 1368 requiring licensure and inspection of abortion facilities the same as ambulatory surgical centers in the state.
Strict pro-life laws are also being challenged in Kansas.
