The ability to access abortion, like other forms of essential healthcare, improves social, economic, and overall life outcomes. Studies show that people who are able to access an abortion are more likely to go to college, achieve greater pay equity, have more satisfying relationships, and have better mental health than people who are unable to get an abortion.
