Indies play a crucial role in defending our rights and abortion access in the courts. They lead countless legal challenges to medically unnecessary and unconstitutional abortion restrictions at every level of the court system to keep their clinics open and continue to provide compassionate, expert abortion care in their communities.
Right now, we face the threat of the most conservative and anti-abortion U.S. Supreme Court in a generation. Any day now, a legal challenge led by an indie clinic could be the next abortion case brought in front of this Supreme Court. Indies show up time and time again to fight for all of us– and they need your support for the tough battles ahead.
With the addition of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, abortion access in the United States is more precarious than ever. Judge Barrett has a long history of openly criticizing Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. She has even gone as far to say that abortion is “always immoral.” She has consistently voted in favor of abortion restrictions in her time as a federal judge and will without a doubt provide the fifth vote to cut back, if not overturn, Roe v. Wade, eliminating abortion rights in this country if and when given the opportunity.
The reality is we are looking at a near future where abortion access will be even more dependent on the state you live — with people living in the Midwest and the South being most harmed due to lack of protections for abortion in their own state constitutions. We know that independent clinics will still continue to show up and fight for all of us in the courts, the state legislatures, Congress, and in their communities. However, they cannot do this without your help — support indie clinics today.
