With the federal government and many states making it harder than ever to access reproductive health care, especially abortion, it’s time for our cities to lead. See how 40 cities and counties across the United States are fighting back and pushing forward.
In the first six months of this year, advocates and legislators introduced 581 pieces of proactive legislation to advance access to reproductive and sexual health care, including abortion. Read the full report here.
Our new white paper, “When Self-Abortion is a Crime: Laws that Put Women at Risk,” raises awareness about the harms of criminal bans on self-abortion, with a particular focus on New York, which is one of a handful of states with criminal laws on the books that explicitly make self-abortion illegal.
The National Institute for Reproductive Health and NIRH Action Fund are working with state, local, and national partners across the country to push forward with a proactive agenda for reproductive health, rights, and freedom.
