Laguna Beach rally for women’s reproductive rights this Saturday
LAGUNA BEACH, CA — Virtual and real-life protests for women’s reproductive rights are taking place in all states and in Washington DC this Saturday, October 2.
The Laguna Beach in-person rally will meet in the grassy area of Main Beach at 10 a.m. and continue until noon. The event is organized by the Laguna Beach Democratic Club.
The day of action focuses on the latest attacks on reproductive rights, sparked by the Texas SB8 ban and the Supreme Court’s rejection of an emergency order to end it.
“We are witnessing the most serious threat to access to abortion in our lifetime,” said the organizers of the Women’s March. “We must send an unequivocal message about our staunch opposition to restricting access to abortion and canceling Roe v. Wade before it is too late.”

The Orange County Women’s March, which has held massive marches in Santa Ana each year since January 2017, will join Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties will host “Raise Your Voice for Freedom of Choice.” The virtual event begins Saturday at 10 a.m. and features U.S. Representative Katie Porter of California’s 45th Borough and Jon Dunn, CEO of Planned Parenthood San Bernardino.
Here’s why organizers say it’s crucial to ‘raise your voice for freedom of choice’:
“We must stand firm to uphold the rights of millions of Americans to make their own decisions about their bodies, their lives and their futures. The Supreme Court must protect the rights and freedoms of all and ensure equal opportunity for all, no matter what race or ethnicity we are, where we are from, or how much money we have. We demand that our voices be heard and if that means getting louder then we are ready to scream until they hear us.
