All* Above All Action Fund is the first reproductive justice effort that builds political power to lift bans that deny abortion coverage.
For too long, politicians have been allowed to deny a woman’s abortion coverage just because she is poor. Our vision is to restore public insurance coverage so that every woman, however much she makes, can get affordable, safe abortion care when she needs it. Join us!

It was the same day the Tejana passed away from an unsafe, clandestine abortion, one she was forced to undergo because the recently passed Hyde amendment prevented low-income people from using federal funds to pay for the legal health care service.

Statement on VP DebateDestiny Lopez, Co-Director of the All* Above All Action Fund, issued the following statement: “Senator Kaine showed that he can be both a man of deep commitment to his faith and someone who respects and supports a woman’s personal decision-making about abortion. In contrast, Governor Pence’s statements and record make clear that he is on board with Donald Trump’s extreme agenda of punishing women who have abortions, including, for example, the Hyde Amendment which pushes women into poverty and forces 1 in 4 poor women seeking abortion to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term."...MORE
