On December 1, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the most consequential abortion rights case in generations. The threat is real: Mississippi has straight up asked the Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. That means the future of abortion access hangs in the balance. #AbortionIsEssential
If Roe falls, *half* of U.S. states are poised to ban abortion. The harm and chaos experienced by folks in Mississippi and nearby states like Texas will spread across the South and Midwest. Make your voice heard NOW — Share this to tell the world #AbortionIsEssential.
If Roe is overturned, let’s be clear about who it would hurt the most. The impacts of abortion bans fall hardest on people of color, people with disabilities, people in rural areas, young people, immigrants, and people having difficulty making ends meet. #AbortionIsEssential

Protecting abortion access is essential to reproductive justice, the right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe, sustainable communities. It’s even more urgent in states with limited access to abortion clinics, like Mississippi.
