As a Service, Abortion Funds Have Some Value

As a “Strategy,” They Are Deadly!

In recent years, in the face of a constantly escalating woman-hating assault on abortion rights, a large part of the so-called "pro-choice movement" has focused on raising money to fund abortions as they become increasingly difficult for women to access. Overwhelmingly, they have done this instead of mobilizing mass political struggle to defeat and reverse the attacks on abortion.

Now, the Supreme Court is poised to gut or overturn women's fundamental right to abortion within months.

Isn't it time (really, long past time) for those who care about the right to abortion enough to help fund it to STAND UP and WAGE A FIGHT IN THE STREETS TO DEFEAT THIS ASSAULT ON ABORTION RIGHTS AND THE ENSLAVEMENT OF WOMEN?

Unbelievable as it may seem quote from Bob Avakian


By their own admission, the National Network of Abortion Funds have been able to assist only a fraction of those who have reached out to them for help. In 2019, for example, their website says they were able to assist only 26% of the 215,573 people who called them. And that is only counting the small percentage of people who knew to call the Funds in the first place!

If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade (the decision that legalized abortion), this would immediately eradicate legal abortion in nearly half the states in this country. Forty-one percent of women of childbearing age nationwide would see their nearest abortion clinic close! There's no way that Abortion Funds could possibly keep pace with the skyrocketing need this would create. And there's no reason to believe that Abortion Funds will be allowed to operate on any meaningful scale for long if the Christian fascist juggernaut driving this assault on abortion is not fought and defeated!

It must be stated bluntly: As a service, Abortion Funds help some (a small minority of) women and others access a crucial right. But, as a “strategy,” focusing on funding abortion is deadly! In fact, if pro-choice people restrict themselves to abortion charity, no matter how many women they help in the short term, they will—despite their “best intentions”—be facilitating a future where all women are enslaved.

In contrast, if we fill the streets with our fury, not just for a day but relentlessly and in growing numbers, we can wake up and mobilize millions throughout society who do not want to see women slammed backwards. Through this kind of struggle, we can change the whole political atmosphere and what woman-haters—from the Supreme Court to the streets—feel they can get away with. This can not only beat back this assault on abortion rights but also bring closer a world where women and all people are free.

DONATE to the revolution.

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War. 

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America

The website follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!
