Reproductive Rights

Access to safe, affordable reproductive health care should be a fundamental right for everyone.

Reproductive health and freedom are fundamental rights. Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973, women have had the legal right to abortion services across the nation. Some states and some private organizations have sought to interfere with women’s access to reproductive services, including abortion and contraception. The Trump administration has sought to create roadblocks for women seeking reproductive services in the United States and abroad.

Attorneys general play an important role in ensuring women have access to reproductive services, including abortion, as is their right under the law. Attorneys general have advocated for reproductive rights, sued the federal government for unlawful restrictions on reproductive services, and advanced legislation to protect reproductive freedom.
