Crazy Abortion Bans

Does it feel real enough for you yet?

Does it feel real enough for you yet? In this special episode on abortion bans, we break down the brief history of how we got here; review the new, very evil types of abortion laws that old white male governors (and Kay Ivey) have recently passed; and hear from the Physicians for Reproductive Health “Voices of Courage” event awardees: Dr. Stephanie Ho, Dr. Rachel Masch, and Helmi Henkin, chair of the clinic escort group West Alabama Clinic Defenders and co-founder of the Yellowhammer Fund.



  1. DONATE: Find your local abortion clinic fund through the National Network of Abortion Funds; Physicians for Reproductive Health, Planned Parenthood, NARAL
  2. BECOME A CLINIC ESCORT: Look up your nearest independent abortion clinic through the Abortion Care Network, call that clinic and inquire about escorting!
  3. SIGN UP: for local and national organizations supporting abortion that can keep you up to date on the crazy fast horrible legislation being passed almost weekly and other ways to stay involved. The #IStandWithPlannedParenthood site is a great place to start!
  4. TALK ABOUT ABORTION: de-stigmatize and normalize by using the correct language (screw this “late term abortion,” “heartbeat bill,” etc nonsense); tell your story (if you’re comfortable sharing); support others when they share their truths
  5. VOTE: duh
