Abortion Rights are Human Rights
The lawmakers responsible apparently prefer to exploit division and hate rather than govern based on empathy, science and data.
They falsely claim their laws are "Pro-Life".
We call abortion rights Real Pro-Life.
Here, we provide you a Shopping Guide to help you direct your shopping spend to companies located in States that are #RealProLife.
We've started with two States with restrictive abortion laws and just a few Companies and will add more States and Companies over time.
The #RealProLife Shopping Guide
Georgia Based Companies
While you weren't looking, Georgia headquartered Coca-Cola went on a buying spree, moving beyond its sugary drinks origins (with all the health hazards they entail) and moved into a wide range of beverages, some more healthy than others.
The good news is that, if you're interested in putting a bit of heat on Coca-Cola over regressive laws and policies of its home state of Georgia (including regressive abortion laws, voter suppression laws and a failure to join other states in Climate Action), you have a lot of ways of doing so.

When I was in college I roomed with a young ballerina who went out with an older man who said he had “endured” a vasectomy.
After a few months of dating this man, my beautiful friend came to me crying that he had left her and she was pregnant. Did she keep the child and give up her career or have an abortion?
