In 2019 Illinois and Vermont passed bold legislation that protects and enshrines the right to reproductive health care. NIRH launched digital campaigns in Illinois and Vermont to celebrate this groundbreaking legislation and to guard against potential backlash by promoting accurate information about the laws.

Following the successful passage of the Reproductive Health Act, opponents of abortion access began spreading lies and misinformation about the law in an effort to push their anti-abortion agenda and halt similar progress in other states. In response to the web of misinformation spun by those who would like to see abortion criminalized, NIRH launched an aggressive ad campaign in Massachusetts, New York, Virginia, and Washington, DC to set the record straight on the RHA and other proactive legislation.

Before the Reproductive Health Act passed in 2019, New York was just one of a handful of states with laws from the 1800s still on the books that criminalized self-managed abortion performed without a medical provider. [...]

Since 2008, NIRH has engaged in an ongoing campaign to inform supporters about the threat posed by anti-abortion movement to criminalize women who access abortion care. In 2016, in an attempt to educate the public about the Republican National Committee (RNC) platform’s implications for women who have abortions, NIRH launched an aggressive, multi-platform advocacy campaign [...]
