Hundreds of Abortion Restrictions Passed in the Last 4 Years


Since the 2010 midterm elections, states (including Missouri) have enacted 231 new abortion restrictions. Politicians are not medical experts — but politicians have written these types of laws with the ultimate goal of making safe, legal abortion hard or even impossible to access.

P.S. It is your support that drives us to fight for reproductive rights and allows us to provide vital health services to those in our community. Help be there for women, men, and teens in our community by making a tax-deductible donation. DONATE
