RFPU-NW Endorses “Remember Rosie Jiménez: National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice”

This Sunday, October 3rd, people around the country will be mobilizing in support of reproductive justice. October 3rd is the 44th anniversary of Rosie Jimenez’ death from a back-alley abortion (after the Hyde Amendment banned federal funds from covering this procedure). The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear a case challenging Roe V. Wade sometime later this month, with a decision delivered next spring or early summer.

RFPU – NW Members encourage their co-residents and fellows to attend!

Seattle Event:  “Not the Church, Not the State” March and Rally
When: Sunday, October 3, 2:00pm
Where: Meet at St. James Catholic Cathedral (804 9th Avenue) and March to Federal Courthouse (700 Stewart Street)

Reproductive Justice Now: “Jiménez was a Latinx college student who died on October 3, 1977 after she couldn’t pay for a legal abortion and had no choice but to seek out a cheaper, unsafe option. She is considered to be the first person to die after the Hyde Amendment made it illegal for Medicaid to pay for abortions.

This action also connects to a Supreme Court hearing this fall on a Mississippi case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case that could overturn Roe vs. Wade. Let’s work together to demonstrate public support for Roe v. Wade and pressure the U.S. Supreme Court. It took a movement to win abortion and it will take a movement to keep it!

Demands: 

  • Protect & expand Roe v. Wade; safe, legal abortion on demand without apology
  • Repeal the Hyde Amendment
  • Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices
  • Stop forced sterilization
  • No to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses
  • End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare
  • Defend queer & trans families
  • Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare
  • Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions”

It’s important that we get different perspectives from our Union Members (you!) in order to make sure that our contract proposals represent as many resident voices as possible. See below for meeting registration links.
