Any day now, the U.S. Supreme Court will release an official decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade. Tensions and fears are high, but we are doing everything we can to help people obtain timely, legal, affordable abortion care – and we will never stop.
In our recent conversation with Mother Jones, our President & CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller talked about our Abortion Wayfinder Program, a program that was born out of our drive to help desperate Texans denied an abortion under Senate Bill 8.
As the article shares, “Texas clinics have been transformed into what are essentially somber travel agencies. Since SB 8 took effect, an average of nearly 1,400 Texans traveled out of state for abortion care each month. Some are forced to travel hundreds, even thousands, of miles for an abortion, causing a ‘domino effect’ by delaying care for others at health clinics across the country. It is also a harbinger of what is to come across the country if, as expected, the Supreme Court guts the landmark 1973 ruling.”
Here’s what Amy wants you to know about our Wayfinder Program:
“What may seem like a straightforward journey from one place to another often becomes fraught with unexpected difficulties and challenges, particularly for already vulnerable Texans.”
No matter what the Supreme Court decides, we are here. We are not going away. Ever. Help us continue to adapt and innovate in this taxing time by making an emergency donation now.
