Abortion is still legal in America


May 16, 2019

Still, reproductive rights advocates say that despite problems with access, people throughout the country, including in Alabama, should know that they can still get abortions.

“On the federal level, abortion is still legal. Roe is still in place,” Monica Edwards, an Alabama native and fellow with the group Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, told Vox before the Alabama law was signed. People who have questions about accessing an abortion in their state should contact their local abortion fund, she said.
