Bans Off My Body Rally 2021

Abortion rights advocates are hosting a Bans Off Our Bodies rally this weekend in Orlando as part of actions and rallies all around the country.

Bans Off Our Bodies is set for this Saturday, May 14, at 6 p.m. at a location to be announced — though in all likelihood it will be in or around the downtown Orlando area. The rally will be held in tandem with rallies around Florida and the country, including Tampa, Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.

The event is organized by Planned Parenthood of SW & Central Florida and People Power for Florida, in tandem with other local organizations. This weekend's Bans Off Our Bodies follows other rallies held in the immediate wake of a leaked Supreme Court leaked draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP here through Mobilize U.S. The location will be announced closer to the event day.
