Pro-choice groups and their allies have scheduled a national day of action Tuesday to show support for reproductive rights. There will be gatherings in at least six Maryland cities, with the possibility of others being added at the last minute, in response to the harsh anti-abortion laws passed recently in Alabama and in other states.
Rallies will be held at noon in Towson, at Patriot’s Plaza, 401 Bosley Ave.; and in Ocean City, at 162 Sunshine Lane.
6 p.m. rallies have been scheduled for 100 Holliday St. in Baltimore; 34 Calvert St. in Annapolis; 12 E. Church St. in Frederick; and at a location to be announced in Silver Spring.
Rally sponsors in Maryland include: NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland; Planned Parenthood Advocates for D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia; Maryland National Organization for Women (MDNOW); Baltimore Women United; Reproductive Justice Inside; ACLU of Maryland; March on Maryland; Not Without Black Women; the Women’s Democratic Club of Montgomery County; Baltimore Abortion Fund, Women’s Coalition for Action; Association of Black Democrats of Montgomery County; and more.
