The Orinda Women’s March for Reproductive Rights starts at 2 p.m., Saturday (today) at Theatre Square and proceeds to City Hall (on sidewalks, no streets blocked).

Today’s gathering is one of the over 650 nationwide marches for reproductive rights taking place today.  Amy Worth, current Mayor of Orinda, will speak.  The local organizer for the march is former Emeryville Police Chief Jennifer Tejada.


  1. Perhaps someone could enlighten me? It seems to me that they have every right they’ve ever wanted. What more can they want? I simply don’t understand. I’d sure like to understand. Thanks

    • Your comment is disingenuous. These protesters want the law to be enforced. They want the Constitution of the United States to be enforced when various southern states enact state laws that flagrantly violate US constitutional rights, rights that specifically and exclusively affect women’s bodies, but most especially poor women’s bodies. Women in Orinda and other affluent communities are women! They, too, recognize when they are being patronized and lied to. They should be praised for standing up for their sisters who suffer the burden of these oppressive and unlawful actions, and for standing up to the tyranny of ignorant old white men in power who have never, ever, honestly contemplated what their responsibility is for creating new life. I cite, Brett Kavanaugh, “I like beer”, as an example of the latter.

      • David, Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate the time you spent creating the response. Thank you.

  2. I’m pro-choice, and incapable of giving birth, but Newsom already signed a bill in California. Californians getting worked up about what goes on in the rest of the country is as asinine as other states getting worked up about the California recall. If you don’t like what’s going on in Texas, etc. don’t go there. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Whether you’re pro-choice, pro-life or you couldn’t care less one way or the other, MYOB. Get over yourself. Unless you’re a taxpayer in another state, you’re forcing your political beliefs on others. A lot of red states are pro-life, and that’s their business. If they want to be pro-life, let them be pro-life.

    When it comes to abortion, unless you’re the expectant mother or father, stay out of it. It’s none of your business to push your beliefs on others. Will you be raising the child and supporting the family financially?

    Purple, red or blue… it belongs at the polls and nowhere else.
