Statement from Jenny Black, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood South Atlantic:

Today, abortion remains safe and legal in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. But make no mistake: the Supreme Court's decision to allow Texas' radical six-week abortion ban to go into effect is sobering. The immediate impact is devastating, as many Texans will be forced to travel out of state for the health care they need or carry pregnancies against their will. And it opens the door for anti-abortion legislators to try these abhorrent tactics here.

This is the latest, but not the last, in a long string of attacks on reproductive health care and bodily autonomy. The grim truth is that this very well may be the beginning of a post-Roe reality for our patients with the balance of the Supreme Court now turned against the right to bodily autonomy.

When someone decides to have an abortion, it should be safe, affordable, and free from punishment or judgment. No one should be forced into pregnancy against their will. Planned Parenthood South Atlantic will keep fighting for that vision and keeping our doors open to anyone who needs us, no matter what.
