Why You Should Join Us?

Following the draft majority opinion recently leaked to the press in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court seems poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, taking away a fundamental right that people have relied on for nearly 50 years. Utah, in 2020, passed a so-called trigger law in SB 174. A trigger law is a bill passed in preparation for a decision from the Supreme Court that could strike down Roe v. Wade and recognize that abortion is not a constitutionally protected right.  The leaks have left many fearful and confused about abortion access and how to best advocate for reproductive freedom.

We are here to say abortion is healthcare and a necessary right, and we must continue to fight. It will be a long fight, but we must remain vigilant in working to defend and, if necessary, regain access to our rights. We will do this by being a source for people to turn to for accurate information. 

Now is the time to get involved, and we need all hands on deck to protect our communities.
