Bans Off Our Bodies Rallies Taking Place Across North Dakota

We're coming together to fight attacks on reproductive freedom in North Dakota.

Recently, Politico published a leaked draft of the Supreme Court majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization that explicitly overturns Roe v. Wade.

The court has not issued a ruling yet, but make no mistake: this is a crisis for abortion rights in the United States.

In North Dakota, a trigger ban would abortion could be illegal in the state if the Supreme Court stands by its draft opinion. This would make North Dakota one of several states that could move quickly to ban abortion, meaning millions of people might live without local access to abortion. 

If Roe falls, more than half the states in the country are poised to ban abortion, and our opponents won't stop there: politicians are already talking about a nationwide ban, and they will do everything in their power to enact it. Now is the time for North Dakotans to take a stand for the future of reproductive freedom.

Come together and demonstrate the collective strength of our movement at the Ban Off Our Body rallies on Saturday, May, 14.

The ACLU North Dakota, ERA Now, North Dakota WIN Fund, North Dakota Women’s Network, Planned Parenthood North Central States, Prairie Action ND and the Red River Women’s Clinic, North Dakota’s only abortion provider, have joined with activists across the state to participate in Bans Off Our Bodies rallies, a national day of action to demonstrate deep support for access to safe, legal abortion care.

The Bans Off Our Bodies rallies will be held nationwide, including several communities across North Dakota.

Together, we are sending a clear message that the majority in this country support abortion and abortion access must be protected.
