Every individual should have the right to determine for themselves if, when, and how they would like to become a parent, without government interference.
Reproductive freedom is a fundamental human right, and the ACLU of Delaware is committed to ensuring that Delaware’s laws and policies make that right a reality for everyone – no matter where they live or how much is in their bank account.
Abortion is one of the most common and safe medical procedures performed today. But since 2011, states have enacted more abortion restrictions than they did in the previous 10 years combined. Extremist politicians across the country have shut down clinics, enacted oppressive gestational limits, and even banned abortion outright.
Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, we strive to ensure that every patient in need of care is able to receive the full range of reproductive healthcare. With your help, the ACLU stands ready to remove barriers and expand abortion rights, block efforts to strip pregnant people of their bodily autonomy and ensure that individuals have agency in their own reproductive decisions.
With the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions and at least 26 states poised to ban or heavily restrict abortion access, it’s more important than ever for Delaware to ensure that we remain a safe haven for access to care – for Delawareans, and for those who are forced to leave their state to receive the care they need.
