Abortion

We believe that women should have the option to choose abortion. Today they can, thanks to the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. But even though access to abortion is legal, our right to it is far from safe. Anti-choice groups attack our right to choose at every opportunity.

Take Action

Tell Congress to Repeal the Anti-Choice Gag Rule on AmeriCorps

If a woman seeking abortion care goes to a health care center staffed by AmeriCorps volunteers, AmeriCorps volunteers are prevented—by law—from providing full information about her reproductive health care options.

End the House Special Committee Attacking Planned Parenthood

Exposing people involved in fetal tissue research to harassment and intimidation is not just wrong. It's dangerous and irresponsible. Tell Rep. Marsha Blackburn to dismantle her committee attacking women's health.

Stories

Julie

We were told our two options: we could terminate the pregnancy or carry the baby to term and see what happened. I asked point blank about the chances of a miracle. They had no optimistic outcome to share with us.

Jeni, 34

At almost 21 weeks, Scott and I went to our appointment with the specialist. The sonogram operator asked us to be quiet, immediately changing the mood of the room.

The Problem

Anti-choice people want to outlaw abortion, regardless of the woman's situation. They will stop at nothing to make it harder for women to access abortion. They even target the doctors who provide abortion care.

Anti-choice people use many of the following tactics to reach their goals:

Our Solution

We will always have to fight to keep abortion safe and legal. This means defeating attacks in Congress and in the states.

We also believe in reducing the need for abortion. This means we support improving access to birth control and teaching young people comprehensive sex education.

Finally, we always are sure to separate anti-choice myths from facts.
