Canadian UU response to Roe V Wade

The decision by the US Supreme Court reversing Roe vs Wade sets us all back. As Rev. Anne Barker, President of the UU Ministers of Canada reminds us, “The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court does not change Canadian legislation, but that does not mean we are not impacted by it. Our collective liberation is bound up together and we know that what harms one harms us all.”

We are in solidarity with our UUA colleagues as they take action against this Supreme Court decision, and grieve with them at this reversal.
