Media Advisory: Abortion Is Healthcare Event on 6/11/19

Abortion has been all over the news lately. Different types of abortion bans have become law recently in various states. Missouri is trying hard to shut down the last clinic in Missouri. In fact, in the midst of the fight between the state and the last clinic, Missouri just added a punitive regulation requiring women seeking a legal abortion in the state to undergo a mandatory, medically unnecessary, invasive pelvic examination. North Carolina has its own drama that played out with one of the abortion ban bills. Hear about all of this and why abortion is health care and women continue to need access to them and other aspects of reproductive care. Join us to support safe and legal abortion.
