SCOTUS Response

The Feminist Institute Jun 24, 2022 2 Minute Read

Today’s decision is a national tragedy. Abortion has never been about the courts or legislature but the people who need necessary medical care. This decision isn’t about life but the desire to control and police the right to choose. We must remember the past and the experiences of pre-Roe abortions and continue fighting for access to safe abortion care. We demand complete and comprehensive abortion access — forever and always.
