NYC just became 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 New York City! #FundAbortionNYC
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.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE BATTLEFRONT
FIGHT FOR AFFORDABLE ABORTION ACCESS RIGHT HERE IN NYC
WHARR is part of a coalition uniting behind the #FundAbortionNYC campaign to ask the New York City Council to directly fund the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF).
With outrageous attacks on reproductive rights around the country, now is the time for NYC to set the national standard as a place where abortion is not just accessible, but affordable for all.
