Health Care Without Harm's statement on Supreme Court rulings

  • US & Canada

Access to health care is a human right.
Abortion care is health care.
Addressing the climate crisis is health care.
Reproductive justice is environmental justice. These issues are inextricably linked. 

The Supreme Court’s decision to strip away federal protections for abortion care and reproductive health services widens gender and racial inequities and health disparities.

Soon, the Supreme Court will rule on the EPA’s ability to regulate air pollution.

Taking away protections that have been in place for decades on abortion is an attack on people of color, people experiencing poverty, and the most vulnerable – so is taking away protections on our environment. 

Health Care Without Harm will continue to stand up to these injustices and actively work to change entrenched systems to protect and increase access to health care for all.
