The Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation strongly opposes the new limitations upheld in the Texas legal system. This law bans abortion after 6 weeks, even in the case of rape or incest, and offers a $10,000 bounty to private citizens who sue anyone who has, performs, or “aids and abets” an abortion after 6 weeks. For more details on this egregiously unconstitutional law, see this NPR article.

We urge Unitarian Universalists of all gender expressions to be part of efforts to challenge this law and ensure that safe abortions remain available. You can give your time and money at local clinics, or get give to national advocacy groups working to protect reproductive justice. A few resources:
