To the Editor:
On June 24, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, eliminating the federal constitutional right to abortion. While we are unlikely to face abortion restrictions or loss of access here in Maine, 36 million women and other people who can become pregnant across the country likely will. They will have to find the funds, time and transportation to travel out of state, seek a self-managed abortion outside the health care system or be forced to stay pregnant against their will.
As an ally, I believe everyone should have easy, safe and legal access to abortion.
We got here partly because abortion stigma kept us silent. Now is the time to talk about abortion loudly and proudly. Speak up for abortion rights.
