Reproductive Freedom & Women's Rights
The decision to have a child or not belongs to each individual woman, her family, her doctor and no one else. Politicians often interfere with that decision. Abortion is one of the most common medical procedures performed today, and it’s incredibly safe. But laws that make it difficult if not impossible for a woman to get an abortion if she needs one, particularly if she is poor, are increasing at an alarming pace. Here in Indiana, the ACLU currently has four pending cases defending Hoosiers' rights to make their own reproductive decisions. These cases defend the constitutional rights of women, doctors and healthcare providers.
