On June 29, 2020, the Supreme Court struck down a medically unnecessary Louisiana abortion restriction in a 5-4 ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo. This means access to safe, legal abortion in Louisiana is protected for now, but attacks on our reproductive rights continue. The fight for reproductive freedom for all is far from over. We are in a world where politicians have pushed basic healthcare almost out of reach for millions of Americans, and your ability to access abortion is still determined by where you live, how much money you make, and in this country that effectively also means the color of your skin.

Politicians at the state and federal level will continue to do everything they can to take control of our bodies, lives, and futures. In fact, abortion is on the ballot in 2020 in states like Louisiana and Colorado; politicians are still exploiting a pandemic to try and restrict access to reproductive healthcare, and there are upwards of 20 other abortion cases in the pipeline to the Supreme Court. But we will be there fighting every step of the way, until access to basic healthcare is fully realized for everyone — regardless of their race, income, location, or gender identity.

Though we have a small victory in June Medical Services v. Russo, the onslaught of attacks on our access to healthcare and our safety are far from over. Planned Parenthood Advocates for DC, Maryland and NoVa will continue to push our local leaders until access to basic healthcare is both firmly protected as a fundamental right and is available to everyone — no matter what.
