AMARILLO, Texas-Women's March national will lead an action on Wednesday,

March 15, 2023 in Amarillo, Texas as to a hearing by Federal District
Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk of the Northern District of Texas. The judge
will ultimately rule on whether to overturn the Food and Drug Administration's
approval of the medication Mifepristone, the abortion pill.


What’s happening?

Anti-abortion extremists are attempting to ban medication abortion nationwide. Anti-abortion groups filed a lawsuit in federal court to challenge FDA approval of Mifepristone, which has been available via prescription for some 20 years and is one of two abortion pills currently on the market and approved by the FDA.


What is Mifepristone?

Mifepristone is a life-saving medication. It is used in the most common abortion method in the U.S. today - medication abortion, when a patient takes pills to terminate a pregnancy. Mifepristone is also used to manage miscarriages and pregnancy complications. It’s been approved by the FDA for over 20 years, and it’s safer than Tylenol. 

Why Amarillo?

These extremists filed their case in Amarillo, Texas on purpose. The Northern District of Texas is a division with just one judge, Judge KacsmarykAnti-abortion activists knew he had a 100% chance of being assigned the case and they believe he will rule in their favor.

Why is this important?

If the judge agrees with anti-abortion group’s arguments to overturn FDA approval of Mifepristone, it could lead to a nation wide ban of the most common abortion ban— even in states where voters have rejected abortion bans and where abortion rights are protected by state law.

On March 15th, 2023, at 9am and again at 5pm CT Women's March national will mobilize in Amarillo, Texas, to shine a spotlight on this case

The inaugural women's march took off in 2017, days after then President Donald Trump's inauguration, and Cleveland, a largely Black major American city, was among hundreds of cities that took part. More specifically, some five million women combined in cities across the country, led by the national women's march out of Washington D.C., took to the streets for the first women's march to march against Trump's racist and anti-female rhetoric during the 2016 presidential campaign and to fight for women's rights in general, the largest single day protest in American history.
