A California school board member has called for boycotting the 4th of July in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
She says “there is no reason to celebrate”:
‘I am especially not interested in celebrating a holiday centered around freedom from oppressive government when that freedom is not a reality for so many people in this country. Lastly, last Friday women’s reproductive rights were taken away. We are not in a place of progress or celebration when human rights are being taken away,’
