One year ago, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, eroding the legal right to abortion guaranteed for nearly half a century. The Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization ruling declared that there is no constitutional right to abortion.
This decision has had devastating consequences, particularly for marginalized communities.
The fall of Roe has amplified the challenges faced by marginalized individuals who have been living in a post-Roe reality for years. It has emboldened anti-abortion activists to restrict access to abortion further, disproportionately affecting Black women and femmes, LGBTQ+ individuals, and other marginalized groups.
At Women Engaged, we envision a more just future where reproductive autonomy is accessible to all, irrespective of means. To realize this vision, WE is working within a coalition to pass the Reproductive Freedom Act in Georgia. This vital legislation aims to remove unnecessary abortion laws and expand access to abortion by allowing additional healthcare providers to perform the procedure. WE also advocates for laws that enhance healthcare access for pregnant individuals and new parents and strengthen the social safety net.
We invite you to join our efforts by standing in solidarity with us.
Together, we can advance reproductive justice and create a future where everyone has the choice and access they deserve.
Thank you for your support and commitment to reproductive freedom in Georgia.
