The Issues We're Fighting For

Issues

We're fighting for true reproductive freedom in Massachusetts, and that includes sexual and reproductive health, equitable abortion access, immigrant rights, racial justice, and more. The Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts and its grassroots supporters are a powerful presence on Beacon Hill for issues that relate to improving access to reproductive health care and greater health equity for all people across Massachusetts. 

Fighting for true reproductive freedom in Massachusetts means fighting for an unapologetically intersectional, equitable agenda. Learn more about our new legislative priorities.

OUR LATEST VICTORY:
The ROE Act

With the passage of key provisions of the ROE Act, Massachusetts dismantled barriers to abortion and reformed state laws so every person has the right to pursue the life they want, including the right to decide if and when to become a parent - without political interference. The ROE Act will ensure that more people in Massachusetts can seek care when and where they need it.

National Attacks

The federal government is now in the hands of out-of-touch lawmakers who have tried for years to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers and cut patients off from care. If they succeed, millions will lose the care they rely on each year, with people of color, those with low incomes, and folks in rural areas most affected.
