The United States Supreme Court has ruled to end protections to the right to abortion. Take action now and demand that governors across the USA stop the abortion bans and protect the right to abortion care now.

On June 24th, 2022 the United States Supreme Court ruled to end protections to the right to abortion. This means that now individual states across the USA regulate the right to abortion. Abortion is now totally or near-totally banned in 26 states in the USA — more than half of the country — with more poised to enact restrictions or bans on the right to abortion.

It’s clear: the United States is regressing when it comes to the human right to abortion care.

Access to abortion is a human right. Under international human rights law, everyone has a right to life, a right to health, and a right to be free from violence, discrimination, and torture or other cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment. Forcing someone to carry a pregnancy against their will — for whatever reason — is a violation of those rights. Abortion must be legal, safe and accessible for all.

Help us ensure all people have access to abortion care. Tell governors across the USA: stop the abortion bans and protect the right to abortion care.

URGE STATE GOVERNORS TO PROTECT THE RIGHT TO ABORTION CARE
