Different women coming together in support of Reproductive rights

Reproductive Rights and You

The U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (597 U.S. __, 2022), overturned the nearly 50-year precedent set by Roe v. Wade (410 U.S. 113, 1973), which had recognized a constitutional right to abortion. The Dobbs decision has sparked a litany of changes in state laws across the nation, and more are expected.

Contact Your Congressional Representatives

Posting on social media is great but calling or meeting with your legislators is the most effective.

Know the status of legislation. Refer to a bill by number whenever possible. Remember that a legislator’s time is limited, as is the time of his or her staff. Write the chair or members of a committee holding hearings on legislation. Find your legislators’ information

Donate to the Advocacy in Action Fund

ASRM has already dedicated a significant amount of money to a fund we are calling the Advocacy in Action Fund. But additional resources are needed to hire lobbyists in key states, pay for legal analysis of proposed bills and develop alternative language, place advertisements in states with ballot issues.
