Two Major Abortion Decisions at SCOTUS

SCOTUS issued two major decisions on reproductive rights this month.

In FDA v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine, SCOTUS ensured that, for now, women and those who may become pregnant have legal access to the medication abortion drug mifepristone.

Then, in United States v. Idaho, the Court declined to rule (also for now) on whether states can restrict access to emergency abortion care. Their decision means that an Idaho law that prevents pregnant people from getting emergency abortion care in hospitals is now blocked to the extent that it conflicts with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act.

Since the 2022 repeal of Roe v. Wade, reproductive care has been eroded in many states. The League of Women Voters continues to stand with people who may become pregnant in the fight for reproductive freedom.

Cyndi Lauper, the Mystics, & the American Library Association Promote VOTE411.org

Ahead of the critical federal election, LWV and VOTE411 partnered with several new activists and organizations to promote election information!

To kick off Pride Month, members of the League of Greater Los Angeles, CA, LWVUS, and the LWV Board joined activist and pop icon Cyndi Lauper's float in the West Hollywood Pride Parade. Marching alongside members of Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles and True Colors United (which Cyndi co-founded), they encouraged parade-goers to make their voting plans at VOTE411.

LWV also launched partnerships with the Washington Mystics, tabling at several games — including the highest-attended WNBA game in 17 years.

Finally, we joined forces with the American Library Association to encourage civic education nationwide!
