Make this Summer a Turning Point
for the Right to Abortion
Against the backdrop
of a wave of anti-abortion legislative assaults, Operation Rescue has
announced plans for a "Summer of Mercy 2.0" targeting the brave and
outspoken Dr. LeRoy Carhart in Germantown, MD, July 31-August 7.
Operation Rescue is the same organization that hounded Dr. George Tiller
in Wichita, KS, for years (until he was assassinated by one of their
associates in May '09). Their original "Summer of Mercy" in 1991 shut
down access to the Dr. Tiller's clinic for six weeks and resulted in
3,400 arrests, they are invoking this alarming history again in their
"Summer of Mercy 2.0" event.
honor of Dr. Tiller who lived by the motto, "Trust Women", we are
building for the Summer of Trust. Pro-choice activists and
organizations are joining together to mount a serious and determined
showing of public support for Dr. Carhart and the Germantown, MD,
clinic, and the legal right to choice.

efforts: 1) Send young people from L.A. to join the frontlines of the
struggle in Maryland for the Summer of Trust; 2) Support Revolution
Books as a center for the movement for revolution. Learn more about
this crucial struggle, and participate in an afternoon of spoken word,
dramatic readings, an art auction, and music.
