UPDATE: On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, eliminating the constitutional protections for those seeking abortions. The decision is expected to result in abortion bans in almost half of the 50 states.
On May 2, 2022 a draft written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito was leaked. It revealed the Supreme Court's opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark case by the Supreme Court that protects a woman's right to choose to have an abortion. This wouldn't only set women back decades, but it would also put millions of women's physical health at risk if they are not legally able to get an abortion at a licensed physician's office. Having the option to have a safe abortion should not be political, but a basic human right.
If Roe v. Wade is overturned, the 13 states with trigger laws around abortion will eliminate the right to have the procedure completely. This could have a domino effect and lead to a federal ban. It is crucial that we all use our voices and resources to fight for women and those who are able to get pregnant and their reproductive rights. In addition to protesting, sharing resources on social media, and donating to local abortion funds, we've put together a list of nine fashion brands who are showing their support for women's rights by donating profits to different reproductive rights organizations.
