We are the majority.
7 in 10 Americans consistently say they believe that abortion access should be legal. They believe that the decision of how and when and with whom we become parents is best made by women—not politicians.
So why are we fighting abortion bans and clinic closings, and facing opposition when we try to improve access to birth control?
The anti-choice minority has mobilized and organized, and they’ve elected their representatives at numbers far higher than we have.
While 7 in 10 Americans are pro-choice, only:
- 4 in 10 members of the U.S. Congress are pro-choice
- 3 in 10 governors are pro-choice
- 1 in 10 states have both a pro-choice House and Senate
It’s time to close the gap.
There are plenty of easy ways to speak out as part of the 7 in 10:
- Join: Stand up and be counted as one of the 7 in 10 pro-choice majority!
- Advocate: Tell your members of Congress to support the Women's Health Protection Act.
- Organize: Invite 6 friends to sign up for the 7 in 10 campaign.
- Donate: Give to NARAL Pro-Choice America so that we can work to get closer to 7 in 10 in Congress and in state houses.
- Agitate: Volunteer with NARAL Pro-Choice America and our affiliates.
