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

A collection of stories of real people who have had to make the difficult choice to get an abortion. 
Our Body Our Choice: (Still) Fighting for Abortion Access

UPDATED: September 1, 2021  

 

 

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 surge of restrictive abortion legislation in the United States in 2017, the Momotaro Apotheca team spent time with a few individuals who were faced with tough a very difficult, yet very personal decision to seek an abortion.


Its message rings no less true, especially with the Texas state law that quietly went into effect September 1, 2021 banning abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy — often before one even knows they are pregnant. 


The 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.
