Watch the Rally to Protect Abortion Rights

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.

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.
