    We Need Your Support in 2021!

    NAPW needs your support to continue our fight against the criminalization of pregnancy that is already flourishing in the current criminal law system, which disproportionately targets Black, Brown, and poor white people. NAPW needs your support to continue our reproductive justice-informed criminal defense work for those who have already been arrested. And, we need your help to continue our power-building organizing and education work that recognizes that all people with the capacity for pregnancy have reasons to unite and fight for reproductive justice and against claims of separate rights for fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses.

    Join us on 1/29 @ 1pm EST for an NAPW Webinar: 5 Turning Points on the Road to Insurrection: Anti-abortionists and Trumpism

    On the day of the annual “March for Life,” Dr. Carol Mason will explore the contributions of the “pro-life” movement to Trumpism. From the deadly Capitol insurrection to the continued denial of facts and science, the anti-abortion movement’s leaders have fueled the flames of dangerous right-wing militancy. Dr. Jennifer L. Morgan, NAPW Board Member and Professor of Social & Cultural Analysis & History; Chair of the Department of Social & Cultural Analysis at New York University and NAPW Executive Director Lynn M. Paltrow will join Dr. Mason for conversation and questions and answers.


NAPW DEFENDS AND ADVOCATES FOR THE RIGHTS, health, and dignity of pregnant and parenting women


NAPW combines legal advocacy, public education and organizing to achieve a country in which no one is arrested, shamed, or denied constitutional or human rights because they have the capacity for pregnancy, are pregnant, or because of any outcome of their pregnancies — including births, miscarriages, stillbirths and abortions. NAPW is committed to advancing the equal rights and personhood of all pregnant people including those most likely to be targeted for arrest, detention, and blame — low income women, women of color, and drug-using women.




These issues are in fact interconnected and all of NAPW’s work reflects this.
