The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union — beyond one person, party, or side. Our mission is to realize this promise of the United States Constitution for all and expand the reach of its guarantees.

Abortion Under Attack

Our basic human right to control our bodies and futures is under attack. Across the country, politicians are rushing to pass abortion bans such as Texas’ SB 8, which has already spawned copycat bills in other states. And if the Supreme Court opens the floodgates to politicians banning abortion later this year, the ability to get this essential care will be on the line for everyone in America.

Abortion is our right. We all deserve the power to control our bodies, lives, and futures. Abortion is also health care. Getting access should not depend on where we live, how much money we make, or who we are. Abortion access is but one of a wide array of rights at stake — the same politicians trying to ban abortion are also attacking our right to vote, access birth control, marry who we love, and hold police officers accountable.

We need to send a message to politicians in the streets and at the ballot box: Abortion is a right, and you can’t ignore us.
