Abortion rights are under attack

Based on documents leaked in May 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States is expected to overturn Roe v Wade, the historic case that made abortion legal in all 50 states.

If Roe v Wade is overturned, each state will choose whether abortions are legal. In this case, it is critical that state leaders understand why abortion rights need to be protected.

In 2021, 14 states passed laws that restrict a women's right to choose.

Restricting abortion access does not stop abortions

According to Guttmacher Institute, abortion restrictions do not decrease the number of abortions. In fact, regions that restricted access saw increases in abortions.

When people have access to safe abortions, they typically also have access to contraception, accurate sex education, and other reproductive healthcare. With better sex education and more access to medical care, unplanned pregnancies are less likely to occur. Banning abortions only bans safe abortions.

But when laws restrict access to safe and affordable abortions, people either have to get unsafe abortions or have to carry to term unwanted or unsafe pregnancies. Carrying a pregnancy to term could endanger the mother's life, deliver a baby "incompatible with life," cause long-term trauma or medical issues, perpetuate cycles of poverty, and more.
