The hypocrisy of the ‘pro-life’ movement would be laughable if it wasn’t so horrifying.
Discussions like this demonstrate how issues usually considered separate are outcomes of the same systems of domination and oppression.
All Stop Prosecuting Abortion Articles
On August 29, seven Reproaction activists met at the Boone County Courthouse in Columbia, Missouri, for a visibility action. We united as a part of Reproaction’s Stop Prosecuting Abortion campaign, which exposes the logical consequence of abortion bans: sending people to jail for their pregnancy outcomes.
As we ran out of our flyers holding Congressman Wright and Congressman King responsible at Capitol Hill, we had many folks thanking us for being there and standing against the prosecution of abortion.
This summer, Reproaction activists in Missouri were busy taking direct action to advance reproductive justice and increase access to abortion.
The level of access that this anti-abortion group has to the White House is concerning.
Over 20 activists attended our action, and several people walking by also joined in and stopped to take photos with our Stop Prosecuting Abortion signs to show their support. We even had volunteers who brought a maraca and a drum to help drown out the ‘pro-life’ hypocrisy.
We are clear that more abortion bans will put more people in jail for pregnancy outcomes, and our message was simple: Stop Prosecuting Abortion.

What you should know now about Kristan Hawkins’ false and shaming claim is that there is in fact no medical distinction between self-managed abortion with pills and what she dubs ‘natural miscarriage.'
Anti-abortion activists are hiding behind their supposed love of women and using the trauma of assault to attempt to regulate abortion access and paint bills like the RHA as harmful to pregnant people.
As the activists rounded the corner, they lifted their signs to match the #StopProsecutingAbortion projection lighting up the side of the hotel.
