Sorry, SCOTUS, but It’s On

Sorry, SCOTUS, but It’s On

Where were you when you learned about the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion? Our team was covering the Met Gala, and there was only one, now-viral way to process the cognitive dissonance.

Here we are, eight weeks later, our worst fears confirmed: In their opinion on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, effectively ending abortion access for millions of people across our country.

Rage is a natural response, and the rage of mostly women—although it should be the rage of everyone—will get a lot of air time in the coming months and years. As it should.

But there’s a lot more than that happening already. There’s grassroots optimism across every single state, which is hard to fathom but nevertheless very real (see proof). There’s a new generation now galvanized—and changing their plans—according to a Cosmo survey of pro-choice Gen Z, a full 90 percent of whom believe it’s in their power to make significant impact on safe abortion access.

We aim to do the same thing with the stories below: Channel anguish into action, show you that there is a path forward, and leave you with a renewed sense of energy, maybe even with a little bit of hope.

This work won’t be easy—important stuff like this never is—but there’s power in our numbers and strength in our shared conviction. Start here.
