What We're Doing to Protect Abortion Rights
We are dismayed over the leaked draft decision indicating the Supreme Court is likely to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The choice on how to handle a pregnancy should be made by individual patients in consultation with health care providers, not by lawmakers or politicians. Making abortions difficult to access will not prevent abortions. Without access to safe reproductive health care services, people resort to unsafe means to terminate their pregnancy, and this disproportionately affects younger people and people of color.
Remember: You can only ban safe abortion.
If this news makes you feel helpless, or sad, it’s important to remember that Roe v. Wade has not yet been overturned, but it’s critical we engage in the fight to keep it at this very moment. Now is the time to mobilize, using everything we’ve got to protect our reproductive freedom and rights. For us, the founders of Sava, that means using this platform to raise both money and awareness.
On Saturday, May 7th, we will donate $5 from every order to KeepOurClinics.org.
Independent clinics serve nearly 60% of patients in the U.S. each year who have an abortion, and many have been forced to close their doors over the last few years. They are smaller organizations that have limited marketing and fundraising capabilities and often struggle to stay open. The #KeepOurClinics campaign is rallying support around this critical network of organizations that provide an essential service to our communities. Learn more at KeepOurClinics.org.
Reproductive rights are human rights. Abortion is healthcare.
