A busy hoe is a happy hoe
What we've been up to
Yesterday the reproductive rights of all in our community who have the ability to give birth to a child were attacked when the Supreme Court of the United States by a vote of 5-4 overturned Roe vs Wade. That same day in Missouri, legislation was passed which made abortions illegal.
Sister Jewnita Hug and Sister Marjorie Arcana, took up the call to represent and protest for reproductive rights yesterday. Yesterdays disastrous decision, threw so many people into fear and anger and the SOIL Sisters felt it important to go join in on expressing that anger and fight that fear at Planned Parenthood in St Louis. We saw bravery, we saw people coming together for a cause forming a community and we heard Representative Cori Bush speak to the crowd. Reassuring us that while this was definitely a terrible blow, we cant and wont stop fighting.
The Sisters were welcomed and they even ran into familiar faces. They joined in chant, they held space for others to feel safe and made sure to let anyone they talked to know they were loved and that a persons right to their own body and the choices they make for it are sacred.
And we are also letting you know, you are loved and you are always safe with us.
