When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Republican-led states quickly implemented severe abortion restrictions and outright bans. This left hospitals, pharmacies, medical practices, and other health care providers scrambling to interpret the new laws and communicate policy changes to employees. Already, we’ve seen reports of OB-GYNs hesitating to terminate unviable pregnancies that are endangering the health of a pregnant person because the fetus still has a heartbeat, and of pharmacists refusing to fill prescriptions for non-pregnant women of childbearing age because the medication could cause miscarriages.

If you are a health care professional working in a state that has enacted new anti-abortion laws, we want to hear from you about how your employer has changed its policies to comply with these measures. Ideally, we would like to see the emails, memoranda, and other internal documents conveying these new directives, so we can better report on the implications of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision. Contact us at motherjones.com or, to communicate via secure Protonmail (you’ll need a free account for yourself), email mother_jones_mag at protonmail.com. Use the subject line: “Abortion policies.”

Tips can be published anonymously. Mother Jones may reach out to you to help verify the submissions, but will redact identifying information from materials we publish at your request. In order to protect yourself, please refrain from using work email addresses or devices to send us the information.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
