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.

The Hyde Amendment Again Included in FY17 Budget

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.

Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt: Amicus Brief from National Network of Abortion Funds

The National Network of Abortion Funds is proud to join the diverse chorus of people choosing abortion, abortion providers, religious leaders, lawyers, and politicians from both sides of aisle who submitted 45 amicus briefs to the Supreme Court for the case Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt* on Monday. We stand firmly beside Whole Woman’s Health and the freedom fighters of Texas as they ask the Supreme Court to overturn HB 2, a law that would make abortion more inaccessible for those already struggling to gather resources to afford an abortion. We believe it is crucial that the Supreme Court listens to people who’ve had abortions and not political ideology when issuing their decision.
