Press Release National
Washington, DC — Today, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear arguments in an Idaho case about whether emergency room doctors must provide emergency abortion care in states that ban abortion.
Reproductive Freedom for All President and CEO Mini Timmaraju released the following statement:
“Every day, the truth is clearer: Anti-abortion extremists never intended for abortion ban ‘exceptions’ to work, and they never cared about pregnant people or their families. The Supreme Court must do the right thing and ensure that doctors can provide emergency abortion care.
For over 50 years, Reproductive Freedom for All (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice America) has fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom at the federal and state levels—including access to abortion care, birth control, pregnancy and post-partum care, and paid family leave—for everybody. Reproductive Freedom for All is powered by its more than 4 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 8 in 10 Americans who support legal abortion.
