On Friday we were devastated to witness the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to abortion in the United States. The catastrophic implications of this decision will change the face of America.
We made this film because we believe in the right to abortion without barriers or stigma and strongly feel the lives of women & pregnant people shouldn’t be gambled with for political gain. This desicion is the result of a multi-decade effort to restrict women’s freedom and equality and politicize abortion at the expense of Americans’ health, freedom and wellbeing.
“[The anti-abortion movement are] willing to forgo traditional norms around how power and checks and balances operate in a democracy. That is the thing we need to be most afraid of. That is the reason why we have to see this film. I can’t think of anything more fascist right now than taking complete control over someone’s body. And that is exactly what they said in this film – your body is not your own.” -Alexis McGill Johnson, president, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
Now it is time to mobilize. We have created a list of actions and resources recommended by the leading organizations in the movement for abortion justice.
Our top 3 actions today are:
1.Donate: The National Network of Abortion Funds is a network of 90+ direct support organizations in all 50 states.
2.Show Up: Be Heard: Find a Decision Day action event near you today.
3.Get Care: If you need care, reach out to a provider immediately through ineedana.com. For help self-managing your abortion or miscarriage, contact the M+A Hotline.
As we look to the midterm elections this November, it is imperative to show up at the polls for abortion rights. We will be sharing news about our community screening initiative focussing on the 26 states we expect will ban abortion soon, and motivating audiences to get involved.
