The National Organization for Women and Montgomery County NOW affirm that reproductive rights are issues of life and death for women, not mere matters of choice. NOW fully supports access to safe and legal abortion, to effective birth control and emergency contraception, and to reproductive health services and education for all women. We oppose attempts to restrict these rights through legislation, regulation, or Constitutional amendment.
Reproductive rights and justice is one of NOW's and MCNOW's six core issues. Our other core issues are: constitutional equality, racial justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, economic justice, and ending violence against women. We will be holding a panel discussion and Q&A on each of these core issues.
