We’re in solidarity with Texans, who continue to live under this cruel and complicated abortion ban. Every day S.B. 8 is in effect, people are harmed.

But it’s not just Texas — abortion is on the line across the entire country. So far, 2021 is the worst year on record for abortion restrictions.

In December, the Supreme Court will hear a case about Mississippi’s 15-week ban that directly challenges Roe v Wade, which protects each person’s right to make their own decisions about abortion. The results of this case could be catastrophic. If the Supreme Court were to allow this 15-week ban to stand, it would render Roe v. Wade meaningless, and put abortion access at risk across the country.

New research from Planned Parenthood Federation of America and In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda found that if the court were to overturn Roe, 26 states could move to ban abortion, jeopardizing access for nearly half the country —  36 million women of reproductive age, plus trans men and non-binary people.

And thanks to researchers at Guttmacher, it’s clearer than ever to see how far folks will be forced to travel for care.

Already, abortion is a right in name only for many Americans. Systemic racism and other barriers to access make this a fact of life for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities across America, including in California and Nevada.

This fight is nowhere near the end. We cannot be complacent — hoping the courts will protect us while abortion access hangs on by a thread.

Take action today!

  • We are calling on all 17 million Planned Parenthood supporters to join us in demanding abortion access: bansoffourbodies.org.  
  • We need the Senate to take up and pass the Women’s Health Protection Act as soon as possible, and for all lawmakers at all levels of government to ensure everyone can make their own health care decisions without political interference. We have no more time to waste.
  • Donate to your local abortion fund. Find yours at abortionfunds.org
  • Donate to Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte to support advocacy efforts on the ground to expand access in California and Nevada.
