On International Women's Day, we discuss the importance of abortion equality

Thanks to a 1973 court decision of Roe v. Wade, abortion is now recognized as a safe and legal procedure in the U.S.

Although Roe offers women the right to choose, that hasn't stopped many from tirelessly trying to dismantle it.

The National Network of Abortion Funds fights to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion, focusing on the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice. NNAF works to make abortion access safe, inclusive, and affordable. During Women's History Month, Conversations is committed to amplifying the stories of women like Yamani and her team.
