Did you know that you are living in a country that guarantees the constitutional right to safe and legal abortion but does not allow its citizens to access the clinics that provide these services? Did you know that you are living in a country that allows self righteous bullies to shame and intimidate not only the women seeking abortion, but also the doctors who provide them?
Guess what? YOU ARE. This is quickly becoming the grim reality in the United States. Due to a dramatic increase in state-level abortion restrictions, we are now in the midst of a full-blown women’s health care crisis. These hideous state laws that are legislating people’s bodies are also closing down clinics and creating barriers to abortion access. The worst part? They are happening in your own backyard. Right under your noses.
Yep. In 2015, 87% of counties in the United States are without an abortion provider. That means that we are now living in a country where the average distance a woman must travel to have an abortion is 150 miles! On top of that, the stigma surrounding abortion makes it difficult for people to advocate for their own rights by sharing their stories. Are you angry yet? So are we! And we will no longer be shamed into silence.
