I’ll be blunt — We’re running out of time to save our nation’s clinics.
In states across the country, legislatures are restricting women’s reproductive healthcare choices at an unbelievable rate. In Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin, anti-choice bills and amendments to sometimes irrelevant legislation are threatening women’s access to reproductive health resources. This impact goes further than strictly restricting access to abortion: these clinics offer vital resources like cancer screenings, medical treatments, counseling, and education for their communities. Across those states, the number of clinics in total will drop from 101 to 22 or less when recent anti-choice legislation takes effect. Some states will be left with no abortion clinics if GOP lawmakers get their way.
Here’s a quick look at how clinics in those eight states will be affected. Donate today so we can protect these clinics and women’s reproductive rights.
