Unite Against The Far Right’s War on Women and Reproduction Rights

Sick of the bullshit being spewed and the legislation being proposed by the Far Right against Women and their Reproductive Rights? Despite the fact that most of us at SGS are gay men with penises and lacking the necessary skills to willingly procreate, we get mad as hell at certain Far Right politicians and Religious Bigots who are trying to prevent our Sisters from access to even the most basic women’s reproductive rights and healthcare. Stand up for those rights, regardless of gender or sexuality, this Saturday, April 28, 2012 at Westlake Park, 4th & Pine in Downtown Seattle starting at Noon. If you live outside Seattle, go to the UniteWomen.org site for locations of protests in your area:
