Abortion Access

Take the pledge to become an abortion advocate.

We will fight with everything we’ve got to build a country in which everyone who needs an abortion has access to the care they need.

Now more than ever, we need abortion advocates to join us in an effort to protect abortion access. Pledge to be an abortion advocate with USOW today, and to take your activism to the next level. 

USOW is proud to be a part of the Liberate Abortion Coalition, a multitactical coalition of over 100 organizations who have come together to expand power, grow compassion, provide education, and build a groundswell of support for abortion access across the United States.

 ABORTION RIGHTS 

Attacks on reproductive justice are inextricably rooted in racism and misogyny. There is a long history of systems failing to protect reproductive freedom. There is also an important history of the ways that women, led by Black women, have built movements to liberate themselves and reclaim their bodily autonomy. Access to abortion for pregnant people is essential for true gender and racial justice.

Nearly one in four women in the United States will have an abortion by the age of 45. The landmark 1973 Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, affirmed that access to abortion is a constitutional right. 

Still, every day state governments are working to pass restrictive abortion laws and trying to overturn Roe v. Wade. This is dangerous for everyone. This year, over 561 abortion restrictions, including 165 abortion bans, have been introduced across 47 states.  Find out the laws on abortion in your state here.

Support abortion funds

Abortion funds help provide financial and logistical assistance to pregnant people who cannot affort the cost of an abortion, like transportation costs and other support services.

Support abortion clinics

Abortion clinics are community-based reproductive health clinics that provide essential, time-sensitive services to patients who need them the most. Donations to clinics cover tangible expenses like increased security costs, building repairs, PPE and hazard pay for staff, and sometimes legal fees.

  • Keep Our Clinics: Support independent community providers who are responsible for the majority of abortion care in the US.
  • Adopt-a-Clinic: Support abortion providers and patients directly by ordering needed items from their wish lists!

Get Loud On Social Media

Having honest and accurate conversations about abortion is an important part of advocating for abortion rights, but it can be tricky to know exactly what to say. Check out graphics you can dowload to share with your community on social media.
