#RealProLife Shopping Guide


Abortion Rights are Human Rights

A number of US States have recently added new laws designed to trample on abortion 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.

He hadn’t.

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?

What would YOU do?
