No Body Criminalized

The Repro Legal Defense Fund covers bail and funds strong defenses for people who are investigated, arrested, or prosecuted for self-managed abortion.

Because no one should be behind bars for ending their own pregnancy, or for helping someone else do so.


About Us

We're compassionate advocates and legal experts who fund bail, expert witnesses, and strong defenses for people who are criminalized for self-managed abortion. We're tracking the cops, prosecutors, and courts that unjustly target people for ending their own pregnancies, and we're here to say: not on our watch.

Everyone has a right to abortion in the U.S., but that doesn’t always stop the police from investigating or even arresting people who end their own pregnancies. That’s not right or fair, but the Repro Legal Defense Fund can help fight back by funding a strong defense. If you need help, get in touch with our legal experts and advocates.

Have your attorney file an application with us, or fill the non-attorney form for those directly impacted.
