Today’s Action: Ensure abortion access is an essential procedure

Republicans have predictably used this global pandemic as an excuse to shut down abortion access. Under the guise of reducing non-essential medical procedures (aka ‘things that can wait’), GOP lawmakers in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas moved fast to issue various statewide orders to shut down abortion operations and threaten non-compliant doctors with jailtime.

Abortions are essential procedures with – do we really need to say this??? – very clear time limits, and medical experts agree access must be protected. This is a repulsive, purposeful misinterpretation of real health crisis concerns to enact draconian control over women’s bodies…during a time when we aren’t even able to safely gather in public to protest against it.

More states may try to follow, and this pandemic and subsequent shutdowns may have many waves, so we’ve got to work fast to block further restrictions and overturn those attempted so far.

Call or email your state representatives and ask them to keep abortion access protected as an essential procedure in your state during the pandemic. And, make the following recommendations to improve abortion access while flattening the curve of infection in your state:

  1. Tell your lawmakers to push the FDA to relax old regulation on mifepristone, a drug that allows for at-home medical abortions but is limited-access for purely political reasons, even though abortion advocates have shown its safety and is easily available in Canada.
  2. Push for abortion telemedicine approval in your state. How? About 40% of abortions are medical (non-surgical) via a pill, prescribed over the phone and sent in the mail. It’s the same treatment as a doctor prescribing drugs to help women expel a miscarriage at home. But 18 states currently have bans on abortion care via telemedicine, so this solution isn’t currently possible in many areas.
  3. Allow women to receive a full year of contraception at one time, rather than depending on a month-to-month refill during stay-at-home mandates, and via an over-the-phone appointment with their physician as long as her previous years’ medical records are sound.
  4. Make abortions affordable/free. Over 40 million Americans could be out of work by April. Therefore, even women in abortion-friendly states may find themselves without money or healthcare to cover the procedure.

Email or call your state representatives and urge them to protect abortion access during current and future shutdowns. Recommend the four changes above to further improve access throughout this crisis.
