Vigil for Victims of Unsafe Abortions

Wednesday, May 11th at 8pm

Gathering at the Human Rights Monument

Corner Elgin & Lisgar, Ottawa

Many people do not have access to safe abortion services. Unsafe abortions are most common in countries where abortion is illegal or when there is lack of access. One in 8 deaths from pregnancy related reasons is from unsafe abortion. Globally, 21.6 million unsafe abortions are estimated to be performed each year. By making abortion illegal, Campaign Life Coalation wants to make these statistics even higher.

Campaign Life Coalation is a misogynist, reactionary group that has been organizing many events surrounding anti choice views and against bodily autonomy. Along with the final event, the March for Life (the anti choice march), they are hosting a Candlelight Vigil for Victims of Abortions. Let’s gather at the Human Rights Monument at 8pm to hold a Vigil for Victims of UNSAFE Abortions.

Organized by the Proletarian Feminist Front – Ottawa.

–> Facebook event.

Points of unity:

  • Maintain and improve abortion access as well as sexual and reproductive health care.
  • Defend our bodily autonomy in all its expressions.
  • Elevate the voices of gender oppressed people.
  • Maintain our independence from the state.
