Abortion

We believe that women should have 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 Senators to Stop the Abortion Ban

If we don't act now, anti-choice politicians in the Senate could pass an abortion ban and take away this decision from women.

Stand Up for D.C. Women and Families

Don't let anti-choice members of Congress overturn two non-discrimination laws passed by the D.C. City Council.

Stories

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.

Gina, 13

Gina is a 13-year-old who was raped. When she worried about missing her period and got a pregnancy test, she was 19 weeks pregnant.

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.
