The Supreme Court is set to hear challenges to Texas' restrictive abortion laws. The conservative-majority US Supreme Court hears challenges on Monday to the most restrictive law passed since abortion was made a constitutional right nearly 50 years ago—a Texas bill that bans a woman from terminating a pregnancy after six weeks.

While abortion remains legal in all 50 states, decades of challenges to Roe v. Wade by anti-abortion groups and lawmakers have made it so many people aren’t able to access their right to bodily autonomy. Through medically unnecessary restrictions people of color, rural communities, young people, LGBTQI+ people, people with disabilities, immigrants, and those struggling to make ends meet have been most affected. 

In 2021, Generation Progress partnered with We Testify to launch the below Instagram series that outlines some of the root causes of reproductive oppression. The experiences show how five women navigated these barriers while accessing abortion care. 

The right to abortion isn’t real if only some people can access it. If you agree, join us by demanding lawmakers pass a proactive abortion agenda.
