Last night The Woman Project met at the South Kingstown, RI Town Hall building and projected this animation on the building. It was our way to honor Roe’s fight for the rest of us and for us to say Thank You to South Kingstown for being the first town in the whole state of Rhode Island to pass a resolution of support for Roe v. Wade and the reproductive health care act.
This is what we read on a live recording of this action:
“On this, the 45th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade we celebrate all who worked to make abortion safe and legal in this country. The fight for bodily autonomy started as a grassroots movement in towns and cities across this country. The moment for change grew as elected officials at all levels of government started to pay attention. Now 45 years later our rights are in jeopardy, and so we are organizing grassroots movements and are going back to town and city councils. The Town of South Kingstown was the first, and the only town, to pass a resolution of support for Roe v. Wade and the Reproductive Health Care Act.
So, on this the 45th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we say thank you South Kingstown and the Town Council for supporting Roe v. Wade. We hope all who see and read this will not just contact their State Senator and State Representative, but contact every single person who represents them at any level of government. Every elected official can show leadership and fight to protect Roe v. Wade.”
