CHB Roe vs. Wade Decision Statement
At one point it was implausible to think that the long held constitutional protection of abortion rights could be overturned. The Supreme Court’s recent decision proved the impossible and now states have begun to wield their newfound power, leaving confused community members with little resources and very few places to turn for help. This is only the beginning.
As a community group that works on environmental issues, CHB is committed to the health and well-being of everyone who lives near Commencement Bay, its surrounding waterways and those who may visit any of these areas, including those seeking an abortion.
It is glaringly obvious that the reproductive rights of our neighbors are woefully at stake. States just beyond Washington’s borders have already enacted laws that prohibit abortion, limit access to information and threaten patient privacy. Thankfully, the law remains unchanged in Washington State for now, but our team wanted to do more. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of local resources for individuals whose states have rolled back abortion rights. From medical and financial help to transportation and temporary housing, there are a few organizations and clinics that are leading the charge to make basic healthcare accessible to as many as possible.
We’re in this together. If you know of other programs that should be added to the list, let us know. Please bookmark this page and share.
