Public Campaign on the Criminalization of Abortion: How Much Time

Expanding Abortion Access

Since 2008, NIRH has engaged in an ongoing campaign to inform supporters about the threat posed by anti-abortion movement to criminalize women who access abortion care.

In 2016, NIRH wanted to educate the public about the Republican National Committee (RNC) platform’s policies on abortion access, and implications for people who have abortions. NIRH launched an aggressive, multi-platform advocacy campaign asking a critical question that anti-abortion activists have refused to reckon with: “If abortion is made illegal, how much time will a woman serve?”

NIRH ran billboards across Cleveland during the Republican National Convention to inform attendees and the public about the dangerous implications of outlawing abortion in the RNC platform.

NIRH also released a memo analyzing the trend toward criminalization in the RNC Platform.
