Abortion Rights Reading List

There are no words to sum up the anger and horror we feel right now at the destruction of Roe vs. Wade.

This decision threatens the lives and the health of tens of millions across the nation, and will disproportionately impact people of color, poor people, and disabled people. Victims of sexual violence, people without access to travel for economic reasons or other constraints, young people, people in conservative areas who don't have support systems—the most vulnerable among us are going to be hurt the most by this cruel, misogynistic decision. We must continue fighting, for them and for everyone. All of us are threatened when extremist religious beliefs are allowed to overrule basic human rights.

We must vote, protest, spread information, and find ways to help those whose survival and wellbeing are now in danger.
