Winter is melting away and Spring has sprung. It’s a season of growth, renewal, and change, and that’s not just for nature! As abortion providers and allies, it’s time to plant new seeds so that Americans can continue to receive fabulous abortion care regardless of what the future holds.
In a few short months, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to release its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, a case that experts say could weaken or overturn Roe v. Wade. In other words, this Summer, abortion could be illegal in more than half the country.
It’s not hard to imagine this new reality – just dive into the devastation, chaos, and confusion in Texas under Senate Bill 8. If the Supreme Court decides to cast aside nearly five decades of legal precedent, we’ll see the tale of two Americas deepen as inequalities and health outcomes worsen in states that ban and restrict abortion care.
Our opposition may think they’re clever, but instead they’ve reignited a generations-old fight for reproductive rights and inspired a new movement.No matter what happens, we will be the ones on the right side of history.
In the spirit of Spring, Whole Woman’s Health Alliance and Whole Woman’s Health are sowing seeds to build the best abortion care landscape possible. We’re doing innovative work on the ground so that if Roe falls, we’ll be able to help as many people as we can get the abortions they need.
In the week to come, keep an eye on your inboxes. We’ll be sending fresh details on Whole Woman’s Health’s Virtual Care Services and our latest pilot program that is helping patients migrate out of Texas for the abortions they’re being denied under SB 8.
