Episode 6 Action Items

Attacking abortion access won’t make abortion disappear, but it will make the procedure unsafe, put women’s lives at risk, and cause extreme health disparities.

Contact your federal and state legislators! 20-week abortion bans and Heartbeat bans often appear at the federal level, but legislation surrounding admitting privileges and TRAP laws are state-based. To contact Congress, call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 or write a letter.

Push back against abortion stigma and shame by telling your story! Join Advocates For Youth’s 1 in 3 Campaign Speakout and be an abortion storyteller. The theme for this year’s Speakout is “Justice for Jane,” in honor of the Jane Does- undocumented minors that the Trump administration has attempted to block their access to abortion. The Speakout will be airing on www.1in3campaign.org on February 27 at 1pm.
