The horrific murders targeting Asian American women earlier this month in Georgia are entrenched in a system of white supremacy and racialized misogyny that has been allowed to flourish in this country. That’s why NARAL joined our allies at the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) to call on President Biden to invest in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. Together we will push for President Biden’s budget to be a reflection of his promises to address anti-Asian hate and protect reproductive freedom.
Take Action End Restrictions on Reproductive Freedom!
Last month we drove 1,458 messages to help strike racist abortion coverage bans like the Hyde Amendment from the president’s budget. This month we are asking you to also help ensure that the budget does not include the Weldon Amendment, which emboldens healthcare entities to deny access to abortion care.
It’s time for a budget that protects and expands reproductive freedom. Call on President Biden to ensure there are no restrictions on reproductive freedom in his upcoming budget!
Amidst a wave of attacks on transgender rights, anti-choice activists have been spreading more anti-LGBTQ+ disinformation than ever. Read more about how the anti-choice movement pits cis- and transgender women against each other, all while it works to control people, attack LGBTQ+ rights and equality, and limit access to abortion care.
National Puppy Day
March 23rd was National Puppy Day and we celebrated by sharing photos of your pro-choice dogs on Twitter and inviting supporters to vote on their favorite #ProChoicePup. Bandit won our hearts and took the crown!
Make sure to join us on April 11th for National Pet Day and share photos of your #ProChoicePets with NARAL.
Eliminating Financial Barriers to Abortion Care
Even in California, many seeking care are forced to pay up to thousands of dollars in deductibles, pushing abortion care out of reach. We need #AbortionAccessNow!
The University of California — the 4th largest healthcare provider in California — has entered contracts that prohibit UC practitioners and students from providing reproductive and LGBTQ-inclusive healthcare. NARAL is working to change that.
NARAL members in Nevada are advocating to expand access to contraception. One bill would require emergency rooms to provide survivors of sexual assault with emergency contraception (also known as the morning after pill), which prevents pregnancy. The other bill would allow pharmacists to dispense contraception to individuals without a prescription.
NARAL is committed to supporting our coalition partners and champions for reproductive freedom in the state legislature as they fight against an onslaught of attacks on Georgians’ right to vote.
As harmful anti-choice bills continue to advance through the Arizona legislature, please join our effort to let legislators know #HANDSOFFAZ. We’ve led efforts along with coalition partners like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood to combat them.
Already this year, states have introduced or advanced over 225 restrictions on reproductive freedom and hundreds of laws targeting voting access.
