OA&FS Statement Regarding Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade



Because pregnant people’s options are now more limited due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, access to unbiased all-options pregnancy counseling is critical. Providing this service is central to OA&FS’ mission. We will continue assisting people in making informed decisions about their pregnancy and accessing the resources they need for whichever pregnancy decision they make: abortion, parenting, or adoption.
