Did you see the recent data released by the Guttmacher Institute? It shows that for the first time in 30 years, there was an overall increase in abortions nationwide.
This new data reveals that about 1 and 5 pregnancies ended in abortion in 2020 and after a three-decade decline, abortion procedures saw an 8% spike compared to 2017. This underscores that we should be working together to build a world where abortion care is more accessible, not less.
Instead, the U.S. Supreme Court made the devastating decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the impact of which will be felt for generations to come.
This is more than just numbers to us. We know safe, legal abortion care will always be needed, no matter what bans or restrictions anti-abortion lawmakers put in place. Will you help us?
Without Roe, 12 states have already banned or severely restricted abortion and many more are expected to fall. Those with the power to uphold the constitutional right to this essential healthcare should be doing more at a time when patients need care the most.
The Supreme Court has turned its back on millions of Americans, but we never will. Our patients and the communities we serve have come to count on us, and we’re doing everything in our power to be there for them. Can we count on you?
