"Abortion is about women's hopes and dreams. Abortion is a matter of survival for women." - George Tiller, M.D., 1941-2009
Thursday, May 31st is the third anniversary of Dr. George Tiller’s murder in Wichita, Kansas. It is a somber day, a day of reflection. Dr. Tiller risked his life for women because he knew that it’s not just about abortion.
It's about self-detemination.
It's about treating women with dignity.
It's about control over our own bodies.
These should not be privileges. Every woman deserves the opportunity to determine the path of her own life, and no woman is less deserving of that simply because she has less money.

Today marks the fifth anniversary of legal first trimester abortion in Mexico City. On April 24, 2007, the Mexico City Legislature voted to decriminalize abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The Supreme Court of Mexico upheld the law in 2008.
Because Mexico City is the third largest city in the world, this policy change benefits hundreds of thousands of women with access to free, legal abortion services. The policy also lays bare a need among women in other parts of the country to travel to the capital to obtain safe and legal abortion care.
