49 years ago today, the Supreme Court recognized the constitutional right to abortion in America.

If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, abortion won’t immediately become illegal. Anyone who can take time off of work and fly to California will have no problem getting reproductive healthcare. But Black and poor women will be first and worst impacted by the decision. Studies have found that Black women already have more vulnerable access to abortion, and that injustice leads to worse birth outcomes as well [1].  

Black women are the most educated women in America, and yet they remain the most likely to die during childbirth and the least likely to access appropriate reproductive care. Our sisters at Black Women’s Health Imperative and Power to Decide are working to change that. Can you make a donation directly to them to recognize Roe’s anniversary?

Black Women's Health Imperative targets the most pressing health issues that affect Black women and girls in the U.S. through investments in evidence based strategies, bold programs and advocacy outreach on health policies.

Power to Decide works to ensure that all young people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child.

For 49 years, women have had the right to choose their reproductive destiny, and that has liberated women on all fronts. Women now make up 57% of college graduates and 50% of medical school graduates- up from 16% in the mid 70s [2].
