Take the pledge to become an abortion advocate.
BREAKING: The United States Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade. The right to have an abortion is no longer federally protected.
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.
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade grants state governments power to pass restrictive abortion laws and ban abortion outright. This is dangerous for everyone. Last year, over 561 abortion restrictions, including 165 abortion bans, were introduced across 47 states.
Nearly one in four women in the United States will have an abortion by the age of 45. 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.
