Today is a day of National tragedy. In a transfer that rolled again fifty years of settled legislation in a single fell swoop, the Supreme Court dominated within the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that abortion will not be a constitutionally protected proper. This ruling successfully overturns Roe v. Wade and places the essential query of whether or not individuals throughout the nation have entry to secure abortion care within the arms of the states.
26 of these states have already responded with a resounding “no.” Via pernicious “trigger laws” that took impact the second the ruling was issued or will take impact within the coming weeks, tens of millions of individuals are being stripped of their proper to bodily autonomy as we write this assertion.
The future is undeniably bleak, however we’re not powerless. For one, we now have the need of the individuals. Over 57% of the general public helps upholding abortion rights. We even have the ability of one another. Where as soon as there have been no teams to assist relieve among the logistical and monetary boundaries to accessing an abortion, there are actually over fifty organizations that do that important work and share funds, finest practices, and vivid concepts. And in December 2021, thanks largely to the NWHN’s years of relentless advocacy, medically pointless restrictions on the abortion tablet have been permanently lifted by the Food & Drug Administration.
Knowledge can be energy, and on this ever-shifting panorama, it’s our strongest device of all. That’s why the National Women’s Health Network sprang into motion on May 3rd, the very day after a draft of in the present day’s devastating resolution was leaked in an unprecedented transfer. On that day, we launched a digital training marketing campaign through Google and in style social media platforms to ensure as many individuals as potential throughout the nation understood their rights and tips on how to entry all types of abortion irrespective of their state of affairs. To date, this marketing campaign has reached over 1 / 4 of one million individuals in restrictive states like Texas, Florida, South Dakota, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Virginia.
In the approaching months, the NWHN will combat to revive Federal abortion rights, broaden abortion entry, and educate the general public. We will do that by:
- Continuing to offer reliable and up-to-date info on abortion to the individuals who want it essentially the most, each in print and on-line.
- Expanding our partnership with Plan C, a group of veteran public health advocates, researchers, social justice activists, and digital strategists working to make the abortion tablet accessible to all women.
- Holding elected officers accountable for his or her stance on abortion entry. Control of each chambers of Congress and dozens of governorships and state places of work are on the road within the 2022 midterm elections. The NWHN will create alternatives to get entangled and can ensure that our supporters have the data they should make their voices heard on the poll field.
This is unprecedented. This is private. Join us within the combat in the present day.
