Here’s what you need to know about the strategy that’s now threatening access to health care in huge swaths of the country.

Pride. No matter what.

Pride. No matter what.

Our reaction when out-of-touch lawmakers in Missouri passed a bill that would force women seeking abortion to endure a mandatory 72-hour waiting period:

The country is watching — and if politicians get away with imposing these new burdens on people seeking safe and legal abortion in Missouri, other states will follow. It has to stop here.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

HB 1307, which would triple the mandatory delay before having a safe and legal abortion in Missouri, passed the Missouri Senate AND House. Tell Governor Nixon to protect women in Missouri and ask him to VETO HB 1307!

Stop what you’re doing and go see what’s happening in Jefferson City, Missouri right now: Activists are staging a 72-hour “citizen’s filibuster" against the state legislature’s dangerous and relentless efforts to restrict Missourians’ access to safe and legal abortion.
Despite a dead-of-night vote to pass the bill out of the senate, the Women’s Filibuster is still going strong — because when it comes to protecting reproductive health, Missourians won’t back down.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to ask for everyone to please root and cheer for the women in Jefferson City right now who are filibustering the 72-hour abortion mandate with their own 72-hour filibuster. Missouri is my home, and I want everyone to know how much this filibuster is important not only…

Liz Read-Katz kicks off the 72-hour “Women’s Filibuster” in Missouri.

I thought long and hard about that decision, but once it was made my will never faltered. An additional 72 hour wait, extra ultrasounds, mandatory videos would not have changed my mind, they would have just caused me more pain than I was already going through. The decision to have an abortion is decision that is best left to a woman, her family, her faith and her doctor, not a group of politicians.
