In my latest article for The Progressive, I outline why the abortion bans being proposed in Florida are disastrous.
The landscape of abortion rights shifts daily and the ability to receive abortion care is in jeopardy with threats coming from all sides. For The Progressive, I outlined the threats to reproductive rights from the national level. It’s a snapshot of all of the Federal policies and positions that will affect abortion access in the coming days, weeks, and months. Hopefully, this makes it easier to see how you can take action as well.
This piece is about focusing on the importance of abortion access over solely looking at legality of abortion and being “pro-choice.” It’s not a choice if you can’t access it. During a pandemic, this tension is clearer than ever.
