HWN Suggests

Abortion Access

We can’t know other people’s circumstances, and we shouldn’t make their decisions for them. Abortion should remain legal, and those who so desire should be able to access safe abortion care in their communities. All people need access to the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare services including comprehensive sex education, contraception, maternity care, pre-natal care, and abortion.

Young people are disproportionately affected by waiting periods and other restrictions because they are less likely to be able to afford to travel and take time off work or school to schedule an abortion. But a person’s income and other circumstances should not limit their pregnancy options.
