NIRH believes that every person should have access to quality, affordable, supportive, abortion care in their own community without shame, punishment, or intimidation.
NIRH supports policies that enable the kind of access to abortion care that we envision. We further believe that no one should be misled or face prosecution for having an abortion, whether it be in a clinic, with a provider, or on one’s own.
In every city and state possible, we’re expanding equitable access to abortion care.
