The war on women is alive in Oklahoma, where 11 anti-choice bills were passed in the last two years. The assault continues this year with at least six pieces of legislation, all aiming to dismantle the legal rights a woman is afforded by the Constitution. These bills have innumerable negative consequences for every citizen and reflect a lack of respect for women as rational moral agents. Men and women around the country are organizing a nationwide protest in response to these egregious attacks. A march will take place in Oklahoma City on April 28; similar rallies will occur that day at state capitols across the country.
When you sacrifice the freedoms of one group to accommodate another, everyone's freedoms are at risk. We can no longer be silent.
