Books for a Post-Roe America

As our nation grapples with the revocation of the constitutional right to abortion in the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision, it is imperative that we understand the history of the struggle which won Americans the right to abortion back in 1973, and what the loss of those rights will mean for our society today. Select a book, take a deep breath, and join us in the continuing fight for fair access to reproductive health and bodily autonomy. The arc of the moral universe is long, but it only bends toward justice when the people work to make it so.

Proceeds will benefit the New York Abortion Access Fund.
