  • Stop the Abortion Bans Day of ActionUtah State Capitol, 350 N State St, Salt Lake City, There have been a rash of extreme abortion bans sweeping the country, all with one goal in mind — to bring a direct challenge to Roe v.

This is not what people in America want, nor is it something they’ll stand for. That’s why we’re fighting back.
