SUPPORT OUR SAN FRANCISCO COMMUNITY
In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, UCSF Dr. Amy “Meg” Autry started the nonprofit PRROWESS (Protecting Reproductive Rights of Women Endangered by State Statutes) to provide a safe haven for individuals to access reproductive health care. To accomplish this goal, PRROWESS plans to create a floating health clinic dedicated to offering a full scope of reproductive health and wellness services in federal waters off the coasts of states where abortion is now banned. With an initial goal of raising $20 million, help this idea become a reality by supporting the organization here.
