• NAPW Files Amicus Brief in Support of Challenge to Arizona’s “Personhood Provision”

  • Join us for “Fiction or Reality: The Future of Reproductive Justice”

    On Thursday, January 20th, we invite you to join National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) for a spirited virtual discussion with a panel of experts from academia, journalism, and fiction writing. What does a post-Roe world look like? What does the future of the reproductive justice movement hold? And what is the role of narrative—the stories we tell, the way we tell them, and whose voices are included or omitted—in debates about abortion rights, “fetal personhood,” and bodily autonomy? Each of our panelists is uniquely poised to address the role of narrative and storytelling in the current reproductive justice movement.

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

ABOUT Us

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.
