This is WHARR:
Women’s Health and Reproductive Rights

We believe that controlling one’s own bodily autonomy is a fundamental right. This must include the right to decide all aspects of one’s own reproductive health, including access to safe, legal abortions; the right to safe, economically secure pregnancy and parenthood; and the right to safety, health, and equal protection under the law, irrespective of one’s gender identity or sexual orientation.

We promote gender equity, women's health, and reproductive rights. We take action for positive legislative change; work to elect progressive, pro-choice candidates; and fight against regressive policies that harm women’s health and well-being. A grassroots group based in Brooklyn, NY, we hold monthly meetings and other events to share our work with the community. We’re a working group of #GetOrganizedBK, and we welcome new members committed to our cause.

WHARR STANDS AGAINST ROLLING BACK THE HEALTH CARE RIGHTS LAW

The Trump-Pence administration has proposed a new rule that would roll back critical protections of the Health Care Rights Law (also known as Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act), opening the door to widespread discrimination in health care.

WHARR stands in coalition with groups around the country to call on the Department of Health and Human Services to scrap the proposed rollback and #PutPatientsFirst.

A BIG WIN TO PROTECT AFFORDABLE ABORTION ACCESS IN NYC

New York City is the first city in the country to support anyone—however much money they make or wherever they live—in getting safe, affordable abortion care in NYC!

WHARR is part of a coalition behind the #FundAbortionNYC campaign, which called on the New York City Council to directly fund the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF).

With outrageous attacks on reproductive rights around the country, NYC has now set the national standard as a place where abortion is not just accessible, but affordable for all.
