Abortion is essential, time-sensitive health care, and no one should have to risk needless exposure to a deadly virus to access it. That's why we're urging the Biden-Harris administration to address harms perpetrated by Trump – and expand access to abortion for all. Join us in urging the administration to take action now. Sign our petition.
While rates of COVID-19 infection soared across the country, the Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration to reinstate a dangerous requirement that patients travel in person to pick up mifepristone – a safe and effective medication used for early abortion and miscarriage treatment. As a result, patients must risk needless exposure to the virus to access care.
This is particularly harmful for people of color and people with low incomes, who make up the majority of impacted patients and are also dying from COVID-19 at disproportionate rates due to centuries of structural racism and inequities.
The decision was cruel and indefensible, but also fixable. Sign the ACLU's petition and demand that the Biden Administration ensure safe access to abortion today.
