Support the SAD Act

As reproductive health clinics disappear across the country — and entirely from certain states — Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs), which spread misinformation about pregnancy and abortion, are thriving.

Call or email your lawmakers’ offices and share your support for the Stop Anti-Abortion Disinformation Act (SAD Act, HR 8210 / S 4469).

The SAD Act would assist in ensuring the information patients receive regarding their reproductive health is both medically accurate and unbiased. Thank you to National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) for leading on this during their Week of Action this week!

#AbortionFacts Campaign

UnRestrict Minnesota joined Ultraviolet, Physicians for Reproductive Health, and over 100 medical providers in signing a letter demanding Google ban intentionally misleading advertisements sponsored by anti-abortion clinics.

People are looking for information, not to be persuaded by politically-charged fake clinics. The campaign, #AbortionFacts, was covered this week by The Hill and shared widely on social media.
