In response to the abortion ban passed yesterday by Alabama's legislature, Marjorie Newman-Williams, President of MSI US, said:
“The Alabama abortion ban is cruel and unconstitutional. We hope that it will be blocked by the courts, and we’re deeply alarmed to see states attempt to punish women for making choices about their own bodies, lives and futures.
At MSI, we work in some of the most restrictive environments for abortion care in the world. We see firsthand how bans force women to seek out unsafe abortions, threatening their lives and freedom. Today and every day, we stand in solidarity with women in the United States who want and need safe abortion care.”
