Speak out on social media to defend abortion access!

by Melissa Moore on Jul 8, 2022

Here’s what we need you to do!

Post a video or a photo of you holding a sign explaining  why abortion access matters to you on Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and others) and tag legislators and WREN (@WRENetwork), demanding Protection for Abortion Access in SC. Encourage your friends and family to join in. Use the hashtags #StopTheBanSC #SCPol #BansOffOurBodies and #AbortionIsEssential.

Here are some helpful instructions:

Step 1: Take a video of yourself stating your support for abortion access. You can film yourself discussing why you oppose abortions restrictions and why you support abortion rights OR Take a piece of paper and make a sign explaining why you support abortion access. Some example talking points here:

  • Access to abortion is essential in my community/clinic/town/state because…

  • The right to decide whether or when to have a child is essential for social, economic, and racial equality, reproductive autonomy, and the right to determine our own futures.

  • When abortion care is accessible, individuals, families, and communities thrive.

  • We will not stay silent while our rights are in danger. Together, we will fight for a better future, where abortion care is accessible and where EVERYONE is free to exercise their human rights.·

Step 2: Post the video or a photo of yourself holding the sign on Social Media with the following caption or something similar, make sure to tag your elected official.

  • “I am a constituent from (city you’re from, ex. Charleston), and I am asking you to keep abortion accessible in SC #StopTheBanSC #SCPol #BansOffOurBodies #AbortionIsEssential @MyStateSenator

  • (If you’re on Twitter, split the tags in half and add a second tweet with the other half of the tags so you don’t get flagged for spam.)

Step 3: Share these instructions with friends, family members, co-workers, acquaintances, and others who believe that abortion is essential. And ask them to post their own Speakout on Social Media. We need as many people to post as possible!
