Nearly half of the people of reproductive age in the United States live in a state poised to ban abortion
In partnership with Hope Clinic for Women, Planned Parenthood opens a first-of-its-kind center to help ease logistical burdens for patients
Today, at midnight, Texas’s Senate Bill 8 (SB 8) — a six-week abortion ban — took effect. The law is the country’s first six-week abortion ban to be enforced, triggering a devastating domino effect on abortion access in the Midwest.
Abortion remains safe and legal in all 50 states, including for the 1.1 million women of reproductive age in the state of Missouri.
“Missourians have long felt this looming reality — the right to access abortion hanging on by a thread, and in states like Missouri and Mississippi, by one lone abortion clinic. That thread could soon unravel with the Supreme Court taking up a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade."
Statement regarding Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Director, Randall Williams’, resignation
"We’re disappointed it took this long, but we feel vindicated for every Missourian whose life was made harder because of Williams’ failure as a public health leader.”
