TEA Fund: Donald Trump says we should punish for abortion – but we already do

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.

NNAF Denounces HB 2, North Carolina's Harmful LGBTQ Discrimination Law

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.
