The Need for a Constitutional Amendment for Reproductive Freedom

A constitutional amendment is our pathway to securing the right to abortion, birth control and the full range of reproductive healthcare needs and preventing  political intrusion into our personal lives and decisions. By placing this amendment in the hands of voters, we ensure that politicians cannot revoke or establish barriers to these fundamental human rights.

Being able to decide if, when, how and with whom to start or grow our families is essential to charting our own course for our futures and building strong communities. Reproductive freedom is an economic, health equity, and racial and gender justice issue. 

Ensuring Healthcare Access 

Abortion access is about bodily autonomy, security, and essential healthcare. Without it, individuals face obstacles in obtaining life-saving medical care for miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and other complications. Access to safe, legal and timely abortion is fundamental to protecting public health.

The impact of abortion restrictions reverberates beyond state borders. In states where abortion is banned, clinics close, limiting options for individuals facing pregnancy decisions. Conversely, states with legal abortion face overwhelming demand, highlighting the need for nationwide protection of reproductive rights.
