“This is a critical time for women,” said Christian Nunes, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), a grassroots feminist advocacy group founded in 1966 that champions abortion rights.
issue: Abortion Rights/Reproductive Issues
Last weekend NOW’s grassroots mobilized all across the country to rally for abortion justice. While we know we made our voices heard, our work is far from done.
The passage of the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) would put the reproductive rights protected by Roe v. Wade into federal law.
Most persons are not aware of being pregnant at six weeks and would only become aware later when obtaining an abortion would be impossible. With restrictions like this, access to abortion care is very limited, especially for people with low incomes and people of color.
We must continue to sound the alarm on these attacks on reproductive freedom and prevent S.B. 8 and any other similar laws from being enacted across the country. Abortion access is hanging by a thread.
