When we take bold action, including direct action, in service of our mission, our allies grow stronger in their positions, and our opposition becomes weaker. In other words, Reproaction creates a more favorable climate for abortion rights and reproductive justice. See our impact
Advance Reproductive Justice
Reproaction's vision is to uphold abortion rights and advance reproductive justice as a matter of human dignity. We introduce a new culture of accountability, and empower and inspire the reproductive rights movement and the broader progressive community to openly and enthusiastically stand up for abortion rights.
Reproaction’s mission is to increase access to abortion and advance reproductive justice.
Taking Action for Reproductive Justice
1 Building Power
We are building our organization and our movement.
2 Holding Abortion Opponents Accountable
They say they are pro-life. They're not. They are hurting people.
3 Giving Abortion a Permanent Seat at the Progressive Table
Minimizing and shaming abortion is unacceptable. We do not accept compromises on women's human rights.
