RiseUp4AbortionRights group continues to disrupt church services, large gatherings

Sunsara Taylor, RiseUp4AbortionRights

Pro-abortion disruption is being unleashed in churches, malls, sports stadiums and public areas by the radical RiseUp4AbortionRights group, with the latest target a Church in Detroit, Michigan. As previously reported by Live Action News, naked Riseup4AbortionRights activists disrupted Sunday Mass at the St. Veronica Parish in Eastpointe on June 12, shouting, “Overturn Roe? Hell no,” “Abortion on Demand Without Apology,” and “Overturn Roe.” Congregants responded by countering, “Abortion kills babies.”

video of the disruption was uploaded by the group, as well as Refuse Fascism Ohio. The incident followed multiple disruptions at Catholic churches on Mother’s Day in May, as well as a disruption event at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas.

Who is RiseUp4AbortionRights?

Live Action News previously documented that while RiseUp4AbortionRights was launched in January 2022, its really is a rebranded version of the revolutionary pro-abortion group, Stop Patriarchy, which is led by activists Sunsara Taylor, Lori Sokol, as well as millionaire abortionist Merle Hoffman.

Taylor, who has cheered the disruptions, is a follower of modern communist “architect” Bob Avakian, who, according to Newsmax, is a veteran of the 1960’s group “Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)” and is a “lifelong Maoist.” Newsmax also claims he is “friends” with Bill Ayers, a member of the Weather Underground who signed Stop Patriarchy’s petition against Texas abortion law, HB2. Taylor, Avakian and their cult refer to Christians as “fascists” and message that Forced Birth or Forced Motherhood” (seen recently spray painted on various pro-life centers) means “female enslavement.”

The group, whose motto is also “Abortion On Demand & Without Apology!”, is typically identified by wearing the Green Bandana of abortion rights, claiming on their website, “Green is the color worn by millions of women in Argentina, Colombia, and other countries to express their fierce determination to legalize abortion. We are inspired by their example!”

They have recently attempted to rally supporters to come to the Supreme Court, vowing to block the street to protest the expected decision by the Court to overturn the infamous Roe v. Wade decision.
