“The Socialist Workers Party supports a woman’s right to choose whether and when to have a child, free from state interference,” Alyson Kennedy, SWP Texas campaign chair, told the Militant. “We call for working people to mobilize to defend clinics that offer women family planning, including the right to safe and secure abortions.

“Defending this right is fundamental to a woman’s control of her own life and to winning full social, economic and political equality,” Kennedy said. “This right is key to uniting the working class as broader class battles are on the horizon. Millions more women are unemployed today, forced to choose between responsibility for child care under government lockdowns or going to work.

“We need to build a powerful working-class movement that breaks from the capitalist rulers’ parties and forms our own party, a labor party, to fight for women’s rights and for all those exploited and oppressed by capital.”
