Our Body Our Choice: (Still) Fighting for Abortion Access

States across the country are passing some of the most restrictive abortion legislation in decades, deepening the growing divide between liberal and conservative states and setting up momentous court battles that could profoundly reshape abortion access in America. - The New York Times

The laws themselves go further than ever to challenge Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling that established federal protections for abortion. This is an ongoing battle and while the news may be covering this less and less, the restriction to safe and accessible abortions continues to put people and families at risk. This is a costly and irresponsible violation of our human rights.

In response to the recent surge of restrictive abortion legislation in the United States, the Momotaro Apotheca team spent time with a few individuals who were faced with tough a very difficult, yet very personal decision.

Ultimately, we believe that the difficult choice to seek an abortion is a decision best left to the individual and their doctor. The short video we’ve created here is a collection of stories of real people who have had to make this choice, capturing a fraction of the emotion and grace they bear in the face of one of the most difficult choices one can make.

In addition to this video and photo project, Momotaro Apotheca will be donating 100% of our profits for the next 3 days(Wednesday June 26 - Friday June 28) to The Yellow Hammer Fund, which offers funding for anyone seeking care at one of Alabama's three abortion clinics.
