Too many already face barriers to abortion care, including restrictions, travel, and cost. We all need to become experts on how to get an abortion and how to connect other folks to abortion care.
We need to:
- Learn about self-managed abortion and become resources for those who need to know more about it
- Become our own support network to help folks in our communities facing long travel get rides and housing.
- Keep up the fight to ensure abortion is legal and available.
Youth activists are launching the Youth Abortion Support Collective (YouthASC), a nationwide network of young people committed to becoming expert resources on abortion and to making sure folks in our communities understand all the options and have the support they need.
