March begins at 11:30 am on Sunday, April 25

A BROAD COALITION of community organizations in Vancouver is calling on pro-choice supporters throughout the Lower Mainland to defend women’s reproductive freedom on Sunday, April 25.

The Vancouver march and rally is part of a Canada-wide Day of Action for Choice, organized by the Pro-Choice Action Network and the Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada.

The day of protest coincides with the historic March for Women’s Lives in Washington, D.C., which is sponsored by seven leading national organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

Vancouver’s rally organizers say the attack on women’s choice in the U.S. and the potential ripple impact on Canadians cannot be ignored. They say it’s time for Canadians to speak up for choice to ensure women’s reproductive rights remain protected in Canada.
