Since January 2019, six states have passed laws banning abortion (AL, GA, KY, MS, MO, OH). Politicians have stopped pretending that these restrictions are about making abortion care safer, or protecting patients’ health. They’ve been really clear -- these laws are about taking away the right to have an abortion, plain and simple.
We are in crisis mode over reproductive rights. Governors in Alabama and Georgia have signed laws banning abortion in a domino effect, state-by-state attack to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has been in existence for 45 years.
We have a crucial role to play in protesting against these new laws. We must defend reproductive rights and protect access for those that need it. The ACLU is suing to stop these abortion bans and we're continuing to fight each time the right to choice and access are threatened.
We will do everything we can to ensure that people are able to get the care they need without shame, obstacles, and stigma. Keep abortion safe and legal.
