Why We Stood Up for Abortion Access

March 5, 2020

Last week the Supreme Court heard a case about a Louisiana law that would dramatically hinder access to abortion care. If upheld, the law being challenged before the Court would result in the closing of all but one abortion clinic in Louisiana.

On March 4, we joined dozens of our coalition partner organizations to raise awareness around this critical case by rallying outside the Supreme Court. #MyRightMyDecision brought together a diverse group of people all with a common goal: to speak up for access to the full range of reproductive health services and to protect our power to decide.

We spoke up for a future where access to abortion is protected, because income and zip code should not determine if a person’s ability to access abortion. We spoke up for a future where everyone has the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child.

We spoke up to protect against unnecessary burdens and bans on reproductive health care. Because abortion is health care.
