Women’s March Manatee joins rallies across nation

Saturday’s Pro-Choice March in Bradenton drew 1,000+ fervid participants, including four Board members from the Longboat Key Democratic Club.

Arlene Skversky, Lucie Lapovsky, Francine Achbar, and Nancy Greenhouse (who is quoted in the Sarasota Herald Tribune coverage of the event) proudly attended this critical event, along with many other LBKDC members.

At stake is the basic right of women to make life-changing choices about their bodies. That right is currently at risk in Manatee County, where commissioners are considering onerous restrictions on abortion similar to those passed in Texas, although no abortion clinics are located in the county.
