In post-Roe America, Southwest Virginia has become the closest point of abortion care for many Southeastern states. While abortion access currently remains stable in Virginia, Bristol VA and the surrounding region are deeply conservative; anti-abortion extremists routinely target the only abortion clinic currently located there.
State lines now highlight the ongoing struggle for equal access to reproductive healthcare, and the importance of pursuing justice, equity, and the recognition of individual agency across the diverse landscapes of a nation.
State Line Abortion Access Partners is a collective of local activists fighting to protect reproductive rights in Appalachia and beyond. We work to meet the needs of patients who seek abortion care in Southwest Virginia, overcome "period poverty" in our region, advocate for comprehensive reproductive health care education, and improve abortion access for all.
State Line Abortion Access Partners is a 501(c)(3) public charity.
