Protecting Abortion Access

Planned Parenthood is working to protect women's access to the full range of reproductive health care, including abortion services.

To protect their own health and the health of their families, women need access to all reproductive health care options and should have the right to seek and obtain safe, legal abortion services without interference from the government. 

Anti-choice organizations and decision makers have successfully eroded access to abortion through the courts, through legislative restrictions on abortion services, and by intimidating and harassing women. Planned Parenthood fights anti-choice extremism on every level.
