Women always help women
The Supreme Court doesn’t have to overturn Roe v Wade in order to prevent American women from accessing their Constitutional right to an abortion.
In the days after Justice Kennedy announced that he was stepping down from the Supreme Court, this website saw a 40 percent increase in traffic. Women were uncertain about their reproductive future, stockpiling Plan B, and actively looking for resources that can help them should Roe v. Wade be overturned.
Unfortunately, Roe v. Wade isn’t the only thing women have to worry about. The Supreme Court doesn’t have to overturn the landmark case in order to prevent American women from accessing their Constitutional right to an abortion. Women across the country are already seeing their reproductive rights taken away as states restrict access and close clinics. The “undue burden” loosely defined in Planned Parenthood v. Casey is already too burdensome in too many states.
Following Brett Kavanaugh’s contentious nomination and approval, fears will only grow.
But while this website saw an increase in women looking to educate themselves on all of their options, it also saw an increase in women looking to volunteer and an increase in donations. From midwives, to the Jane Collective, to this very website, women have always helped women.
We will continue to serve as an educational resource on the safety of the abortion pill and as a source for reproductive news. And you can help by donating and, if you are a U.S. citizen, voting on November 6.
