F*ck Bans

Republicans are trying to divide and scare and distract people because their actual agenda stinks. But here’s the good news. These out of touch weirdos are in a bind. Because as it turns out – none of their attacks on our basic freedoms are very popular. So let’s fight back.

What’s at stake in 2024?

In addition to the ever-present and looming threat of Republicans gaining a trifecta at the federal level and passing a national ban, there’s also some (more cheery) news at the state level, as advocates in multiple states are working to get measures on the ballot to codify abortion rights in their state constitutions.

In other words, LFG.

What can i do?

What states are we focusing on this year?


Arizona currently has a 15-week ban. State law requires patients to undergo an initial visit consisting of pregnancy confirmation with ultrasound and physician counseling, then wait 24 hours before an abortion procedure.  Arizona Democrats have introduced bills to enshrine reproductive rights, but currently, the GOP currently holds one-vote majorities in both the State House and Senate.


Florida will have a 6-week ban starting on May 1.. The state Supreme Court has issued a ruling that puts lawmakers’ ban into effect. Additionally, a state law recently went into effect that requires a 24-hour mandatory waiting period for people seeking abortion care.


Abortion is legal in Nevada up until the 25th week of pregnancy. Since the Dobbs decision, many states bordering Nevada like Idaho and Utah have banned abortion. As a result, Nevada is experiencing an influx of new patients seeking safe, legally protected options for reproductive health care.

Why are Republicans so obsessed with taking away our freedoms?
Tbh great question. Rightwing freaks have evidently decided that they can use reproductive freedom as a so-called “wedge issue.” The idea of a wedge issue is that it unifies your side and divides the other side, enabling you to fire up your base and attract persuadable voters. They seem to think that they can spark fear of change and distract from their incredibly unpopular agenda by focusing on things like .. ya know, eliminating bodily autonomy of half the population.

What can we do right now?
Donate, organize, spread the word!

What’s the plan for stopping these creeps for good?
In the medium term, we’re working toward the November 2024 elections, when we’ll have the opportunity to secure abortion in state constitutions, replace anti-abortion legislators, and defeat Republicans in statewide offices and nationally who support the anti-abortion agenda. Then, over the long term, we can fight for national legislation to protect reproductive freedom and organize to build power in red and purple states.
