Student leaders from Advocates for Youth attend to discuss the urgent need to expand access to reproductive health care for college students
“Young people need accessible and affordable abortion services,” said Diana Thu-Thao Rhodes, VP of Policy at Advocates for Youth. “Making medication abortion on campus a reality is one of many ways to do just that.”
Abortion has always been and will continue to be healthcare that those of us who can become pregnant will seek out–even at grave cost to ourselves. Rest assured, abortion access will not disappear in this country.
“We are glad to see that so many of the changes that student survivors, organizers, and survivor advocates have pushed for are included in the proposed regulations. We will continue to uplift student survivors' experiences and advocate for regulations that meet student survivors’ needs as the Biden administration finalizes their Title IX rule.”
Over 40 student groups representing nearly 500 students across 18 different states sign letter in support of the Equality Act
We will continue to fight the restrictions and to center the needs of young people, particularly youth of color, gender expansive youth and youth from low income communities. We will expand our efforts to build our Youth Abortion Support Collective (YouthASC) into a strong, wide and deep network, currently 600+ strong that stretches from coast to coast.
