When the news came in that the Supreme Court had stayed the 5th Circuit decision to restrict access to mifepristone, many of us at carafem breathed a sigh of relief. We put away our contingency plans and assured our team we were business as usual in all 18 states that we serve come Saturday morning. But we didn’t celebrate.
This completely baseless case to limit a safe, effective medication should not be part of the national conversation and should not have made it so high up in the courts. And we know the small number of vocal anti-choice extremists will continue to do everything in their power to limit access to safe and effective abortion care. To them we say, “Try and stop us.”
We are not afraid. We will not back down. We will keep our eyes on the horizon, providing respectful, thoughtful, and affordable abortion care to those who want it, no matter what. We will keep working to create a future where abortion is legal, free of stigma, and wildly convenient in all 50 states. We believe that everyone has the right to make their own decisions about their bodies and their futures, no matter their income, immigration status, physical ability, zip code, political views, or religious affiliation.
And we are not alone. We are proud to be part of the majority of people in the U.S. who support access to abortion care. We are not going to let the small minority of anti-choice extremists dictate our future. But we do need financial support to keep our momentum going.
