Episode 42 Action Items

For those who are outraged by these recent bans and are becoming newly involved in the fight for access to abortion care, it is important to be careful of the language that is used. Practice using the terms “later abortion,” rather than “late term abortion”, and “pregnant person/people” rather than “pregnant woman/ women.” These keeps the fight for comprehensive access to abortion care inclusive and scientifically factual.

Continue to reaffirm that abortion is currently legal in all 50 states! These bans may be frightening and many may think they live in a state that does not guarantee access to abortion care, but that is not true.

Call your local abortion funds and see what you can do to help, whether through donations or volunteer work. You can donate to Alabama’s abortion fund here and Georgia’s abortion fund here.
