"Facts are very important, especially when discussing the health of women* and the American public. The fact is, abortion is an essential component of women’s health care [...]⁠ ⁠

Induced abortion is an essential component of women’s health care. Like all medical matters, decisions regarding abortion should be made by patients in consultation with their health care providers and without undue interference by outside parties. Like all patients, women and pregnant people obtaining abortions are entitled to privacy, dignity, respect, and support.⁠

Many factors influence or necessitate a woman’s decision to have an abortion. They include but are not limited to, contraceptive failure, barriers to contraceptive use and access, rape, incest, intimate partner violence, fetal anomalies, illness during pregnancy, and exposure to teratogenic medications.⁠ ⁠ Pregnancy complications, including placental abruption, bleeding from placenta previa, preeclampsia or eclampsia, and cardiac or renal conditions, may be so severe that abortion is the only measure to preserve a pregnant person’s health or save their life.⁠ ⁠

Where abortion is illegal or highly restricted, women resort to unsafe means to end unwanted pregnancies, including self-inflicted abdominal and bodily trauma, ingestion of dangerous chemicals, self-medication with a variety of drugs, and reliance on unqualified abortion providers.

Today, approximately 21 million women around the world obtain unsafe, illegal abortions each year, and complications from these unsafe procedures account for approximately 13% of⁠ all maternal deaths, nearly 50,000 annually.⁠ ⁠ Sound health policy is best based on scientific facts and evidence-based medicine. The best health care is provided free of political interference in the patient-physician relationship. Personal decision-making by women and their doctors should not be replaced by political ideology."⁠ - The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

*Important note: this quote uses "women" only but we want to also be sure to highlight that reproductive rights are extremely important for trans and non-binary individuals.

Use Your Voice

Contact your elected officials (city council, state legislators, federal legislators, etc.) and ask them to oppose proposed bans/support legislation protecting or expanding abortion rights. Find your Representatives here. These postcards make writing your reps easy.

 Be an Advocate

Talk with your friends, family, and neighbors. Post your concerns and support on social media. Say ABORTION. Say it without shame or fear. Normalize abortion for the simple, safe health intervention that it is. According to a recent Gallop poll, the majority of American's identify as Pro-Choice. Being pro-choice and supporting women's and people with uterus's rights is not weird or extreme. It's actually very normal and standard. It's time that we clear up the narrative and free it of the shame and fear spread by the anti-choice movement.
