Every action has an impact on the fight for reproductive freedom.
Texas' radical abortion ban is in effect, and the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade this year. Closer to home, Gov. Kristi Noem applauded the Texas abortion ban and issued an executive order targeting telemedicine abortion.
We need you to help us fight these attacks.
Every South Dakotan has an opportunity right now show their support for abortion access and demonstrate a collective opposition to any attempt to roll back our reproductive rights. Now more than ever, we have to fight for everyone’s reproductive freedom.
Remind them that you support every South Dakotan’s right to reproductive freedom and that thousands of us are ready to fight.

"Dear [Elected official’s name],
My name is [your name] and I’m your constituent in [District xx].
I am writing you today in support of reproductive freedom and every South Dakotan’s ability to make important and personal healthcare decisions.
Every day, the future of reproductive freedom is growing more uncertain. Thankfully, you can do something about that. The vast majority of South Dakotans support abortion rights, yet some politicians insist on passing laws that delay and obstruct access to care, force providers to close their doors, or ban abortion altogether.
That's why it is urgent for you to rise up and oppose any attempt to chip away at reproductive freedom.
