“Republican-controlled state legislatures have been emboldened by this extremist Supreme Court to pass unconstitutional bans on abortion. Millions of Americans’ reproductive rights are at serious risk.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

With a 6-3 extreme right-wing majority in the U.S. Supreme Court, states across the country have started to pass even more restrictive—and wildly unpopular—bans on abortion care. 

Laws such as those passed in Oklahoma, Florida, Mississippi, and other states around the country are unconstitutional—but that only matters if we have a court that will uphold the law. Reproductive rights are more at risk than at any point since the decision inRoe v. Wade made access to safe and legal abortion a constitutional right in 1973.

Share the graphic below to spread the facts about the Republican attack on reproductive rights:

MAGA Republicans are threatening reproductive rights across the country. Sub-head reads: Below are the most recent abortion bans, not all of them. Below, a table. The first column lists the state, the second details the abortion ban, and the third gives additional details. They are: Arizona, after 15 weeks, no rape/Incest exception. Florida, after 15 weeks, no rape/incest exception. Kentucky, after 15 weeks, Doctors forced to report patient health information. Idaho, after 6 weeks, allows family members of rapists to sue providers. Mississippi, after 15 weeks, no rape/incest exception. Oklahoma, total ban, no rape/incest exception, provider could be imprisoned. Texas, after 6 weeks, anyone helping a person get an abortion can be sued. Text at bottom reads: do you condemn this dangerous, extreme agenda?
