56 People of Color Who Have Had Abortions Send Letter to Congress Denouncing Racist and Sexist Anti-Abortion Ban
We, the undersigned 56 people of color, write to you with concerns as to the future of access to
safe abortion care and the needs of people seeking abortions. We are appalled at the introduction
of H.R. 4924, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which is yet another attempt to
deny abortion care to people of color, in particular, Asian American and Pacific Islanders

On Wednesday, Donald Trump – a candidate for the GOP nomination for the 2016 presidential race – said that “there has to be some form of punishment” for women who have abortions. As the executive director of the Texas Equal Access Fund, an abortion fund providing assistance to low-income people in North Texas seeking access to abortion, I found this statement appalling. I also know that it illustrates an underlying driving force behind anti-choice ideology: misogyny. The idea that women ought to be punished for having sex or for choosing an alternative path to what society has conceived of as traditional gender roles is nothing new. It’s just very rare that anyone says it so brazenly.

The National Network of Abortion Funds is appalled at Governor Pat McCrory and the state legislature's actions to unilaterally sign HB 2 into law, legalizing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and non-binary people in North Carolina. The Governor uses harmful and stigmatizing rhetoric that marginalizes and endangers trans women. As trans women are being targeted, we must answer the call and stand up to this patriarchal attack for the sake of all women.
Our fights are intertwined. Ensuring access to bathrooms and abortion care -- regardless of income, insurance, race, immigration status, ability and gender ---are based on the same principles of compassion, dignity, and fairness.

The National Network of Abortion Funds joined a coalition of reproductive rights, health, and justice organizations Wednesday March 2 to bring the voices of abortion funders to the steps of the Supreme Court. Thousands of people came out to show their support for accessible and affordable abortion.
The case Whole Woman’s Health vs. Hellerstedt has the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of millions of people across the United States by definitively stating that unnecessary, unsafe laws that put abortion out of the hands of people are absolutely an undue burden, and that TRAP laws must be ruled unconstitutional.
Watch the rally here.
