National Network of Abortion Funds Rallies at the Supreme Court for Abortion Access
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- WASHINGTON, DC: The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) joins 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. 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.

Press Statement: Louisiana abortion clinic closures show what’s at stake in next week’s Supreme Court case
The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) is shocked and saddened to see that the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has pushed through an incredibly harmful law in Louisiana. With its implementation, two of the four remaining abortion clinics will be forced to immediately close their doors, leaving just two clinics for an already underserved state. These dangerous policies cannot stand.

We are very disappointed that President Barack Obama included the Hyde Amendment in his final FY17 budget. For a President who wanted his legacy to be ensuring healthcare access for all, no matter their income level or geographic area, we are saddened to see that, once again, abortion has been separated off from other healthcare, despite the fact we know those affected by systemic racism, income inequality, and a lack of healthcare providers will continue to be denied their rights to bodily autonomy and dignity through abortion access. A right reserved for those with more money and power is no right at all; it is a privilege.
