WHARR is the Women’s Health and Reproductive Rights working group of #GetOrganizedBK.

We are Brooklyn residents working to promote gender equity, women's health, and reproductive rights. We take action for positive change and fight against anti-choice and other regressive policies that harm women’s health, produce fact sheets on current issues and legislation, share stories about how those issues impact women’s lives, and hold events to share our work with the community.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BATTLEFRONT

What’s next? join our DECEMBER general meeting!

Join WHARR for our final gathering of the year, which will be part general meeting and part holiday festivities!

We’ll work on prioritizing WHARR’s 2019 initiatives as a group, and then pack holiday gifts for hard working independent abortion clinic staff who deserve season’s greetings and gratitude!

Mark your calendar! Tuesday, December 18th, 7:00-9:00 pm at YWCA Brooklyn (30 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY).

fighting for reproductive rights in new york state

NY State has a dangerously outdated abortion law, which was written in 1970—three years before Roe v. Wade. To this day, abortion is in the criminal code and state law fails to provide exceptions for circumstances when a woman’s health is at risk or when the fetus is not viable.

We must pressure our newly Democratic state legislature to fix New York’s abortion law and pass the Reproductive Health Act!

Just some of what's at stake: In NYC, there are over a dozen Crisis Pregnancy Centers misleading pregnant people about their health care options. In NY State, abortion remains in the criminal code. Black women in NY State are nearly 4x more likely to die during pregnancy and childbirth than white women—and in NYC, 12x more likely. And thousands of women and girls in the United States do not have adequate access to menstrual products.
