The ACLU of Mississippi works to ensure that everyone in our state can make the best decision for themselves and for their family about when and whether to have a child, without undue influence by politicians and special interest groups.
A decision about having a baby or having an abortion is a deeply personal, private decision best left to a person, their family, and their doctor. Yet some politicians remain obsessed with interfering.
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 person to get an abortion if they need one, particularly if they are poor, are increasing at an alarming pace.
We must fight back against laws that make it difficult if not impossible for Mississippians to get an abortion if they need one.
