by the Ms. Foundation

This month would have marked Roe v. Wade’s 50th anniversary. Movement leaders and grassroots activists are working overtime to reimagine and build a future where Roe is the floor, not the ceiling, for reproductive healthcare. Here’s what some of our grantee partners are saying:

Collective Power for Reproductive Justice

Roe v. Wade in and of itself was really the floor to begin with and not the ceiling. And as that monumental decision has been eroded, leaving so many people without access, it’s an opportunity for us to reimagine the future.

Alison Dreith, director of strategic partnerships at the Midwest Access Coalition, for USA Today

Ohio Women’s Alliance

As a queer, Latina, single mom, I know that we must continue to fight boldly for abortion justice so that we can access abortion and other reproductive health services without shame, stigma, criminalization, or political interference like the racist Hyde Amendment. “

Kimberly Inez McGuire, Executive Director of URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity

Ibis Reproductive Health

We mou\r\n \the loss of Roe but we understand that Roe was the floor and we are working towards a world where access to the full range of just, dignified, and exceptional reproductive health care is available to people who can become pregnant regardless of circumstance or zip code, and is provided by compassionate health care professionals who also advocate for reproductive health and justice in their communities.”
