Pro-Abortion Advocacy

The Abortion Care Network (ACN) is a pro-abortion advocacy group that files amicus briefs in court cases and engages in public advocacy efforts related to preserving and extending legal protections for abortion in the United States. [1] [2] [3]

Overview

The Abortion Care Network is one of a number of abortion advocacy groups within the Alliance for Justice. [4] The Alliance for Justice is a left-of-center coalition of more than 100 organizations across the United States. The organization is most well known for the Judicial Selection Project, which promotes left-wing and Democratic-appointed judges while seeking to defeat the nominations of conversative and Republican-appointed judges. [5]

On February 5, 2018, ACN sponsored six billboards in the San Francisco Bay Area opposing the California Board of Registered Nursing’s approval of a continuing education course on medication abortion reversal. [6] On September 20, 2021, ACN filed an amicus brief in the U.S Supreme Court case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization along with other pro-abortion and abortion-rights based organizations such as Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, Medical Students for Choice, National Abortion Federation, Physicians for Reproductive Health, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. [7]

ACN has released statements on various political topics, including its support of the ideals and activities of Black Lives Matter. [8] [9]

Funding

Abortion Care Network has received grants from numerous foundations across the United States. The David and Lucile Packard Foundation gave a $50,000 grant to the ACN in 2018 to support abortion providers. [10] The foundation gave a similar grant to ACN in 2020. [11] Arnold Ventures gave ACN a grant of $602,027 to support its work on contraceptive and abortion issues. [12] In 2020, ACN received grants from the Tara Health Foundation under its reproductive health and religious healthcare category. [13]

People

Nikki Madsen is the executive director of the Abortion Care Network. [14] She is also an author for politically left-leaning and feminist publications such as Ms., [15] Bustle, [16] and Rewire News Group. [17]
