Indira Cesarine stated of the urgency of the benefit auction, “It’s crucial that people stand up now to support reproductive rights, and the legal battle to keep abortion a woman’s decision and not governed by the state. Our rights are under attack. Women’s equality is on the line. The time is now to stand up and support these issues before it’s too late. Young girls forced to have babies will be traumatized and at a disadvantage for the rest of their lives. These laws disproportionately affect women in low-income and marginalized communities further expanding social inequality.”

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many states implemented bans on abortions. According to The NY Times, most abortions are now banned in at least 10 states as laws restricting the procedure take effect. An additional 4 states now ban abortion at about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant.  An additional 4 states now ban abortion at about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant. In more than 6 states in the USA (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin.) abortion is banned with no exceptions for rape or incest. Indiana lawmakers passed a near-total ban with few exceptions for rape, incest, fatal fetal abnormality and to preserve the parent’s life. The ban will go into effect on Sept. 15.

As mentioned in a previous The Untitled Magazine article, the majority of women of reproductive age, 40 million (58%), live in states that have demonstrated hostility towards abortion rights, while 25.8 million (almost 38%) live in states that have pro-choice policies. This study does not take into account persons who do not identify as women.
