Reminder: Reducing abortion through restrictions and bans should never be the goal. Instead we must center the needs of people and protect their right to bodily autonomy by expanding access to affordable and timely abortion care.…
Today on #FathersDay, let's remember the importance of bodily autonomy for all, including the 6 in 10 US abortion patients who are already parents. All people should have the right to decide whether and when to have children—and to access essential care to make these decisions.
Some of the most courageous and beautiful people we know are called “Dad”. Today we celebrate you! Happy #FathersDay!

From @AlethaAkers: “For Black women, this decision looks and feels like White men and women making reproductive choices for us again, without our consent, and while doing little to ensure that our children’s needs are met beyond ensuring their birth.”…
If SCOTUS overturns #RoeVWade, it would be one of the very few times that the Court has rolled back an established constitutional right. The devastating impact of such a decision will bode ill for many other hard-won rights —including those essential to racial equity. #Juneteenth
We celebrate #Juneteenth and the undeniable right of everyone to have their bodily autonomy and self-determination honored. All people deserve to live with dignity.
#Juneteenth has never been a celebration of victory or an acceptance of the way things are. It's a celebration of progress. It's an affirmation that despite the most painful parts of our history, change is possible – and there is still so much work to do. – Barack Obama

Abortions are on the rise. The cost of essentials goods is rising. Housing costs are outpacing incomes. And, the #SupremeCourt seems prepared to deepen the hole for women and families when they most need compassion and support. We can do better.

Important: An increase in abortion is a positive development if it means people are getting the essential health care they want & need. Public policies shouldn’t focus on reducing abortion, but instead center people’s needs & protect their bodily autonomy. #AbortionIsHealthCare

Our resource includes key demographic data because a state’s abortion policies affect all people seeking care but restrictions present significant challenges for people already facing barriers due to factors like their race, income, age or gender identity.
With the future of Roe v. Wade at stake, millions of Americans could lose their right to have an abortion in the coming weeks. Today, I'm standing up by telling my story as we continue to fight to protect your reproductive rights. #OurAbortionStories

When people know someone who has had abortions, they're more likely to support equitable access. When people who've had abortions hear others' stories, they know there's a community behind them. That's why we're supporting abortion storytellers for #OurAbortionStories Day. ❤️
