In many states across the country, people seeking abortion care are subject to a dizzying array of medically unnecessary requirements.
These laws create barriers to abortion access, assault people’s dignity, and entrench discriminatory norms about gender. Harmful to everyone, abortion restrictions impose the greatest hardship on low-income people, people of color, young people, and immigrants, all of whom face structural barriers to accessing health care and exercising their constitutional rights.
Our work uses the law to improve abortion access and uphold the rights and dignity of people seeking and providing abortion care. Our program areas include Access & Innovation, our General Counsel program, and Litigation. You can also read more about our 2022 – 2027 Strategic Plan here.
