On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are proud of our members who provided abortion care before Roe and helped fight for the landmark decision to protect women’s right to make their own private reproductive decisions. We are also proud of our members who provide abortion care today and keep reproductive choice a reality for so many. Unfortunately, the fight isn’t over.

Whether it’s the violence and disruption anti-abortion extremists use to harass and intimidate patients and abortion providers or the constant stream of medically-unnecessary anti-abortion laws politicians propose, the rights recognized by Roe v. Wade are constantly under attack.

Anti-choice lawmakers are determined to undermine women’s access to abortion care-here are 46 regulations in the U.S. that are designed to chip away at the right to reproductive choice by reducing access, shaming patients, and more. You can follow along with us on Twitteron Facebook, or see all 46 here. This is just a small sample of what abortion providers and women are forced to navigate in order to make Roe a reality for the 1-in-4 women who will access abortion care by the time they’re 45 years old.

There is good news, though! We are working with our members and partners to fight back against these attacks! Pro-active, pro-choice laws are being introduced throughout the country this week. The Reproductive Health Act (RHA) has passed the New York State Senate and New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo has already promised to sign it if it reaches his desk. The RHA removes abortion from New York’s criminal code and puts it where it belongs, in the public health law. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, the RHA can help ensure qualified health care providers will be able to provide the abortion care their patients need.

Thank you for all you do to support our members, their patients, and our work at NAF.

We are in this together.
