Hopefully, the Women's March and/or other groups will organize protest gatherings in DC

and elsewhere to give voice go the majority who support a woman's right to choose. And, hopefully, DU will make sure we are informed of when and where we can participate.

Guns for everyone; abortion for none.

Is this America? Are "papers" and numbers tattooed on arms next?

ON EDIT: After reconsidering in view of several reasoned responses from people I respect, I have deleted "PEACEFUL" from the OP title.

1. Don't forget forced pregnancy checks via ultrasound wands.

It will be a rule that uses cruelty to oppress women and those who help them.

2. Marches won't help

GOTV is what will change things. We need a new Congress.

4. Why "peaceful" in all caps?

Orgs in many cities have had a standing expectation that there would be protests the day of the decision, often at the capital.

10. Because the right wing is already looking forward to violent protests to use as justification

6. Whatever we organize

it will be what WE want and if it is not PEACEFUL that is our decision.

I do not have any problems with you but I would hope you would support whatever we do to be allowed to be better than owned livestock (I owe that to someone who posted earlier).

Thank you TygrBright

8. it is hard to do peaceful

When you have minds that will not give a dam about killing you, and who know that they will be lauded as heroes.

I am not saying go October 1917, but as much as people loved Martin Luther King, they would nto have listened to him if they did nto realize Malcolm X was not going to be so polite.
