Since the overturning of Roe v. Wade in June 2022, abortion laws and access to care have varied substantially from state to state. Washington has taken steps to safeguard abortion rights and access during that time, including as recently as April 2023, when Governor Inslee signed a series of bills into law to expand abortion access, safeguard patients who travel from out-of-state, and protect reproductive health care data. In Washington, abortion and contraception are safe, legal, and accessible.

As we face an unprecedented reproductive health care crisis nationwide, I am here with you and for you. I know that abortion care is health care. Reproductive rights are human rights, and you and all Washingtonians deserve the freedom to make your own medical decisions — including about abortion.

Please review the resources below for information on knowing your rights, understanding Congressional action to advance reproductive freedom, and accessing care in Washington.
