Overturning Roe VS Wade doesn’t mean women go to “another state” it means something far worse!
Pro-choice does not mean pro-abortion. We do not advocate abortion over birth – we simply defend the right of women to decide for themselves. The pro-choice movement supports and works towards preventing unwanted pregnancies, reducing abortion, promoting contraception, educating women and youth, and ensuring families have the necessary resources to raise healthy, happy children.
Alabama Reproductive Rights Advocates Applaud Supreme Court Health Care Victory
Washington, DC, June 27, 2016 —
ARRA –Alabama Reproductive Rights Advocates applaud the decisive victory for reproductive rights in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt from the United States Supreme Court this morning. As ARRA advisor and Coalition Liaison Stephanie Gilmore Ph.D. explains, “We are especially grateful to the five justices who recognize that Targeted Regulation of Abortion Provider (TRAP) laws place an undue burden on patients who seek abortion -– especially poor women, women of color, and rural women -– by overturning HB2 that Texas passed in 2013. Today’s opinion reaches well beyond Texas, into Alabama, and across America.”
Women’s health care clinics that provide abortions also provide cancer and preventative screenings, STD and STI screenings and treatments, prenatal care, and birth control. Gilmore elaborated, “For fewer abortions, make birth control readily available.” ARRA – Alabama Reproductive Rights Advocates stand aligned with patients, abortion providers, clinicians, and escorts, as well as reproductive rights advocates and activists throughout Alabama and the United States.
The co-executive director for ARRA (Alabama Reproductive Rights Advocates), Pamela Willis, is an accomplished artist – in fact, you may recognize her artwork from our “Trust Women” logo that features the state of Alabama with the feminist fist icon.
A few months ago, the so-called “Pro Life Action League” sent every single abortion clinic in the USA a set of plastic handcuffs with an intimidating note on the anniversary of the historic Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. Let’s just say that PLAL learned very quickly that you don’t make southern women mad, because we will turn the tables on you.
Initially, we raised over $1,000 for the little “handcuff stunt”. So, PLAL is now indirectly funding abortion for women who need assistance through their dumb intimidation tactic(s). Not to be outdone, Ms. Willis finally completed her art piece using the pair of handcuffs that were sent to the clinic in Huntsville, Alabama. The title of this absolutely beautiful work of art is called “Don’t Tread on Me” and all proceeds from the sale of this painting will go directly to ARRA to help Alabama women.
If you would like to bid on this artwork, you can go to her Facebook page here and leave a comment or send her a private message, or email her here. As of June 6, 2015, bidding is up to $525. Bidding closes at midnight on July 4, 2015, so get to bidding and help ARRA continue to assist Alabama women in their time of need.
