Roe v. Wade: 6 Ways to Fight for Reproductive Rights Now!

Roe v. Wade has been overturned by the Supreme Court leaving abortion laws up to each state. 26 states are moving fast to ban a woman’s right to safe and legal abortions. With over half of America’s states on the brink of taking away a woman’s bodily autonomy, it’s important that women’s rights activists come together to act even faster.

The following are states that already have bans in place or have trigger bans that were set in motion when Roe v. Wade was overturned. After you skim through them, check out the different ways you can make an actual difference in the fight for women’s reproductive rights.

Ways to Fight for Reproductive Rights that Actually Make a Difference.

From joining protests to boycotting corporations that support republicans or the anti-reproductive rights movement, I’ve put together a list of ways you can contribute to the fight for reproductive rights.

Boycott Businesses & Corporations That Give Money to Anti-Abortion Rights Candidates!

TikToker Shares Informational Spreadsheet!

I stumbled across a TikToker called Rainbowsprimkles who has undertaken the massive task of putting together a massive spreadsheet rating Corporations that are not aligned with her values (and mine too). She ranks each corporation by its donations to politicians and issues. Her ranking system includes these categories: Dem vs. Republican, anti-reproductive rights, pro-gun, anti-LGBTQ, and pro-oil. You can use this spreadsheet to boycott companies that are supporting politicians that are taking women and people with uteruses’ rights away.
