Gender-Neutral Abortion Language: Because ALL people with uteruses need abortion care!

Everyone with a uterus can become pregnant and needs access to abortion care, as well as the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare.

But one of the most powerful ways we can shift the cultural response to sexual assault and the treatment of survivors is to support and champion legislation and community initiatives that provide tangible resources and unburden the path to justice and healing for all survivors.
