Defend Abortion

The Supreme Court has thrown away 50 years of precedent by overturning Roe and Casey. More than half of states have laws or constitutional amendments that make it certain or likely that they will attempt to ban or severely restrict abortion, and 13 states have ‘trigger’ laws that automatically ban abortion once Roe is overturned. While this is a blatant, deadly, and undemocratic attack on the working class (particularly against low-income people of color and those living in red states), it would likely only mark the beginning of a right-wing rollback of Supreme Court decisions that enshrined basic queer and civil rights. Our bodies, our lives, our rights, and our democracy are on the line.

Our autonomy should not depend on the whims of nine unelected lifetime appointments but on the democratic will of the people. Join us in fighting back against these attacks.

Share Your Story

Abortion is extremely common – nearly one in four women will have an abortion in their lifetime – and incredibly safe – medication abortion has fewer complications than Tylenol, aspirin, or Viagra. However, stigma has led to shame and silence for people who undergo abortions.

We’re collecting abortion stories in order to break the silence and end the stigma around abortion. Sharing your abortion story is a very powerful form of self-expression that helps to normalize and humanize a very common procedure. Regardless of the reasons or circumstance, your decision to have an abortion is valid and sharing your story also helps others to realize that they aren’t alone and that many of the emotions that happen when seeking abortion care – from traumatic to ecstatic – are shared by others.

Support Abortion Funds

We believe that abortion care is health care, and that health care is a human right. That’s why LVDSA took part in the 2022 Abortion Access Fund-a-Thon fundraiser to ensure our communities can access the abortion care and support they deserve. During this year’s Fund-a-thon, we raised $10k for Nevada’s Wild West Access Fund.

Abortion funding is mutual aid. It is the redistribution of wealth to cover medical costs, but it is also a community stepping up to fill a basic need where the State has failed – and an invitation for that person to join our movement!
