The stakes have never been higher. States controlled by anti-abortion zealots are in a fevered race to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes that the Court’s new majority will overturn Roe. These activists hope to drag the country backwards to a time when legal abortion was banned and women died from back-alley procedures.
These efforts extent beyond abortion. New laws around the country would deny women access to contraception and other medical care — including assisted reproductive technologies and prenatal testing.
These laws hurt women — by denying us the right to make health care decisions that protect our own health and, in many instances, our lives.
