Alliance Statement on the Overturn of Roe vs Wade
We support choice today. And we will support choice tomorrow
The Alliance commits to an active role in the struggle for reproductive justice in response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
The right to the choice not to continue with an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy is an essential, non-negotiable component of the support that survivors of sexual violence deserve after sexual assault.
In standing with survivors, the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault supports ready, safe, and unrestricted abortion access in our city and beyond. We deplore today’s decision by the Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs. Wade. Today’s decision will not end abortions in the United States – but it will make abortion much less safe and more difficult to obtain. Today’s decision will disproportionately impact BIPOC communities as well as pregnant people from other marginalized identities. This is a justice issue. And we pledge to do everything within our power to advocate for survivors’ access to abortions if they want them through policy and activism.
