Act. No matter what.

Protecting and Expanding Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health Care in Illinois

A big win for patients and providers in Illinois!

Governor Pritzker has signed into law a monumental bill that protects and expands access to sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion and gender-affirming care — and supporters like you made it happen! This measure is a milestone in the work to meet the needs of patients in the post-Roe era.

This new law creates inclusive sexual and reproductive health care policies that serve all patients — no matter their zip code, income, or identity — and protects the Illinois providers who offer that care in our state.

Join us and thank Illinois lawmakers and Gov. Pritzker for listening to providers and advocates and bolstering Illinois’ role as a critical access state for abortion and gender-affirming care!

Act Now: Roe was Never Enough — We Need Bold Action to Rebuild Reproductive Freedom in Missouri

Even while Roe stood, abortion was a right in name only for the vast majority of Missourians. We now have an opportunity to reimagine reproductive freedom and what it takes to create meaningful access to abortion — and the full range of sexual and reproductive health care — for every Missourian.

Rebuilding a Future with Reproductive Freedom

When the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, it stripped us of our federal constitutional right to abortion. Within minutes, Missouri was the first state to enact its abortion ban — while Illinois has become a critical access point for patients across the Midwest and South. We're fighting to rebuild a future with abortion access for all!

  1. Sign the petition and fight for reproductive freedom, including abortion access for all.
  2. Tell President Biden and Vice President Harris to protect patients' access to care! Politicians aren't stopping with attacks on abortion — they're trying to "defund" Planned Parenthood, too, blocking access to birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing and treatment. 
  3. Volunteer with Planned Parenthood and Planned Parenthood Advocates! There are remote and in-person opportunities to plug in and make a difference.
  4. Help patients access abortion — regardless of zip code, income or identity — by donating to Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri's Patient Equity Fund.
  5. Donate to abortion funds and practical support organizations that help patients access care: Missouri Abortion Fund, Chicago Abortion Fund, and Midwest Access Coalition.
  6. Bust stigma and build power by sharing your story.
  7. Follow and engage with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Join the Fight for Reproductive Freedom!

Every day, politicians attack our access to sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion, birth control, and STI testing and treatment. These attacks especially harm people of color, people with low incomes, and women who already have to navigate racist and discriminatory systems.

We deserve leaders who prioritize access to care and the freedom to decide if, when, and how to build our families.

We Demand Justice.

As we continue to watch our country’s two very different, racially divided systems of justice unfold, we must demand accountability.

We must demand an end to the inequity that continues to define every moment of life for Black America.
