The ACLU is particularly committed to ensuring that individuals reproductive rights are not compromised because of their race, youth, or economic status, and believes that reproductive rights work must be informed by broader racial and social justice considerations. For more than three decades, RFP has participated in nearly every critical reproductive rights case before the Supreme Court. It has also participated in significant cases in federal and state courts too numerous to count, including challenges to intrusive counseling laws; laws that defund organizations because they provide or refer for abortion; bans on abortion procedures; laws that restrict teens access to abortion; and restrictions on insurance coverage of abortion.
