I want to talk about what happened yesterday in Alabama.
And this morning in Missouri. And last week in Georgia. And in Arkansas and Mississippi in March. And in North Dakota and Ohio in April.
Right now, a woman’s constitutional right to abortion is under attack.
States across the country are passing tighter and tighter restrictions making it harder, if not impossible, to access safe abortion or trying to ban it outright. In fact, most of these restrictions come into place before a woman would even know she’s pregnant.
It’s important to say why this is happening right now: Republicans are on the march to overturn Roe v. Wade.
And thanks to Donald Trump stacking the courts with anti-choice judges, that could be a real possibility.
Access to safe, legal abortion is a constitutional right — and we’re going to fight this with everything we’ve got.
I’ll have more details on how to fight back soon, but if you’d like to take action today, here are some options:
- ORGANIZE: If you are ready to organize and take action in your community, you can stay up-to-date on the latest news here: http://www.stopabortionbans.org.
- DONATE: If you want to help fund local groups on the frontlines of providing reproductive care, consider making a donation to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
- RUN: If you’re ready to kick anti-choice lawmakers out of office, learn more about running for office yourself here: dlcc.org, emilyslist.org, emergeamerica.org, runforsomething.net.
Thanks for being in this fight,
